The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation
The restoration of Williamsburg, Virginia, the 18th-century capital of the British colony, was supported by John D. Rockefeller, Jr., from the 1920s to the 1950s. Through meticulous research, historians discovered that mouldings played a role in the social hierarchy of a home. They found a clear correlation between the degree of detail in the woodwork of a home and the wealth of the homeowner. It is from the restored homes and buildings of Colonial Williamsburg’s Historic Area that Focal Point presents a unique line of WILLIAMSBURG mouldings.

Victorian Society in America
On the heels of the colonial era came 19th Century, or Victorian Design. Once reserved only for the wealthy, elaborate ornamentation became available due to craftsmen arriving from Europe - craftsmen “schooled” in fine wood carving and ornate plastering. Elegant and flamboyant, these mouldings and medallions reflect the architecture loved by Queen Victoria of 19th Century England.

Historic Natchez Foundation
In the years prior to the Civil War, Natchez was a thriving community of northern planters who employed European craftsman to build their homes. French, English, Spanish and West Indian design elements were combined to create a distinctive collection of mouldings, doorways and medallions. During the Civil War, Natchez became the Union Army’s command center, protecting the homes from destruction. Today, Natchez represents the largest collection of pre-Civil War homes in the United States. Click here to see the entire line of Historic Natchez Foundation mouldings and medallions.
