Windsor Mill

Windsor Mill has created a whole-room molding solution: WindsorONE Molding Collection. Created in partnership with Brent Hull, this line features four historically inspired design styles. The Classical Colonial molding characterized by symmetry reflects the period from 1725–1820. The Greek Revival is reflected in the elliptical egg shaped design from the 1820s–1840s. The Classical Craftsman and Colonial Revival reflect the architecture of the early 1900s. The whole-room concept ensures that crown, casing and base mold match. The moldings are constructed from finger jointed, double-primed wood.
