On Trend | Gothic Revival Style Arches

 

Few architectural elements hold as much history as the arch. Fashioned from necessity and adapted for style, the arch has, quite literally, held up through the ages as an irresistibly beautiful design feature.

A keystone of Medieval architecture, the gothic arch is fashioned similarly to a traditional arch, but features a pointed peak. Their sturdy structures allowed Medieval builders to create taller, wider windows and doors, as well as thinner walls because the weight of the roof could be distributed onto the arch rather than the walls.

We’ve been loving the gothic arch recently. Its rich history and simple elegance make it a swoon-worthy feature in any home and we’ve curated a few of our favorite examples of the gothic arch just for you!

Small touches can make the most impact in a design and that rings true with these gorgeous interior doors. Even when they’re tucked away under the stairs or at the end of the hall, the modern gothic arched doors are the true standouts of these spaces.

We love making an entrance and nothing builds drama quite like a gothic arch. The easily recognizable silhouette creates a grand, stately impression that won’t soon be forgotten.

Passageways featuring gothic arches are beautiful, luxurious, and bring glamorous European vibes to a home. They are an unexpected and elegant feature that can soften a space with their gentle curves and symmetry.
