The column is an architectural structure that symbolized power and majesty associated with various royal and religious buildings. In the world of interior design today, it is used mainly for decorative purposes, sometimes to hide load-bearing structures (e.g. floor jacks. beams, etc.).
Column Orders (Style)
There are 5 classical orders of columns:
Each order has several variations, including hybrid styles that have been created from the 5 basic orders.
A column comprises three parts: a base, a shaft, and a capital.
The ratio of the height (h) and diameter (d) of a column are determined by the column order (style). The column’s diameter will range from 1/7 to 1/10 its height, depending on the order (see image above).
The following steps will help you pick your decorative column:
- Step 1. Select a style that fits your design or space
- Step 2. Measure or determine the height for the desired column
- Step 3. Use the figures above to select the appropriate column a related ratio.
1. For the Corinthian order
2. Column height desired is 8 feet (or 96”)
3. The ratio is diameter (d) = height (h) ÷ 10
|d = h ÷ 10
d = 96” ÷ 10
d = 9.6”
In this case, we would select the closest standard diameter, which is a 10" column.
A column is typically freestanding and round. They are at times wrapped around an exterior corner, fixed flat against a wall, or fitted to an interior or external corner (see images below).
