Moulding by METRIE
Finally, the sum is a perfect expression of its parts. Introducing a new concept in creating truly finished spaces. Our Then & Now Finishing Collections - five in all - include perfectly coordinated elements: crowns, baseboards, Ikons™, even interior doors. Every detail obsessed over. And over. We’ve looked at proportions from every angle. Considered and reconsidered dozens of wood species. Our Collections blend past and present into timeless. So you can set the stage, room by room, and let life unfold, day by day.
Fashion Forward Collection: We’ve taken classic designs and added a twist to each one. Simple, yet sophisticated. Classic, yet playful. You can make this collection speak to so many styles. Go with rich sienna brown stains and create a Bistro feel. Evoke a Retro look by finishing the elements with high-contrast primary tones. Each of the three scenes in this collection are transitional, melding traditional and modern – leaving enough room for next year’s hottest trend.
French Curves Collection: If you’re drawn to sculptural curves and glamour, or you’re inspired by the classic forms of the Baroque and Empire periods, you’ll love our French Curves Collection™. The elements lean toward formal and ornate, but you can take them in so many contemporary directions. For example, with a simple whitewash you can bend the collection toward Shabby Chic or Paris Flea Market. Use a dark shade of paint or stain and move it toward a contemporary French Country. We’ve designed scenes to help spur the possibilities. You decide how the elements are set, you choose the finish, and you direct the scene.
Pretty Simple Collection: Are you attracted to symmetry, but don’t consider yourself a true minimalist? Then you’ll want to explore this collection, inspired by the charming aesthetic and decorative detail of the Colonial period. Examine both scenes carefully. You can easily take this collection down the road to Folk Art with rich historical milk paint colors or more Country with mid-tone brown stains. We give you great bones to work with – you set the scene.
TrueCraft Collection: The warmth and honesty of authentic, utilitarian design. There’s nothing quite like the aesthetic created by the Craftsman, Mission and Prairie Style movements. Simple, linear, direct. Use these elements as the setting to create a Southwest Style with sun-washed tones. Go Mountain Modern by dry brushing a cool grey stain. Create a mid-century Bungalow feel by letting the Fir grain show through a warm whitewashed paint. So many places to land when you start here.
Very Square: Art Deco meets Asian Zen. If you’re drawn to strong, crisp lines and precise geometry, this collection is a great place to start. Finish it with clean white paint and go West Coast Contemporary. Stain it a light matte and bring out the minimalist. Use today’s hottest paint color and take it to the Urban Edge. Very Square is a great foundation on which to layer the most contemporary styles.

Architrave Molding Profiles: In classical architecture, it described the main beam resting on the tops of the columns. Today is it often used as a decorative moulding for ornamentation or finishing at the top of windows and doors.
Baseboard Molding Profiles: Baseboards are placed along the wall at the floor. They should be chosen to work in harmony with your casings to finish and tie the room together. Baseboards are usually thinner than your casing.
Basecap Molding Profiles: Base Caps are used as an addition to wood baseboard to create an attractive, finished appearance.
Casing Molding Profiles: Casings define the overall character of a room and are often the most visible part of the trim. They are used primarily to cover the gap between drywall and the door and window frame. Casings are generally thicker than the base mouldings.
Chair Rail Profiles: Chair Rails are practical as well as decorative. Applied to a wall from 24 to 48 inches up from the floor, they protect the wall from scuffs and dents from the backs of chairs as well as adding a beautiful accent to any room.
Crown Molding Profiles: Crowns are placed along the wall at the ceiling. They come in a wide range of patterns and sizes. Crowns soften the transition from wall to ceiling while adding a distinctive look and charm to your room.
Wainscott & Cap Profiles: Trimwork installed in the area below a chair rail. Numerous options are available including raised panel, shadow box and beaded. Combined with a chair rail and baseboard, Wainscoting creates a dramatic look to any room.
