NEW ZEALAND MADE
We have an extensive range of mouldings proudly made right here in New Zealand.
A collection that has been very successful both in New Zealand and overseas has been FOUNDRY.
Embodying the essence of aged, raw materials found in urban, contemporary settings, this collection offers a sophisticated, modern look to answer the ever popular Industrial Chic trend. Foundry’s wide selection of five transitional, geometric profile shapes and a flat fillet complement the complex, industrial look of the collection’s three metallic finishes. The Brass, Iron and Rust tones in Foundry’s palette offer a soft mix of colour paired with a worn metal edge to add a sense of age. The oxidized matte patinas of the three finishes create an ideal contrast to the sheen of the edges of the profiles, which have been subtly distressed.
For a more detailed moulding, the 7674 range is one of our most popular lines. Artists are especially drawn to this exquisite moulding.
It has a rich scroll pattern available in five popular finishes.
