This includes full length, naturally air dried, American timber, energy efficient, dual pane glass, and solid blacksmith forged, wrought iron hardware.

These cherished family items will touch our loved ones for many years to come through physical interactions as well as family photos . Many societies, including the Egyptians and Mayans, as well as European royalty and aristocracy have created and passed down heirlooms for thousands of years.
In fact, if it were not for these artifacts, it would be impossible to know these people ever existed, and how they were important to history. This is also the case in the 21st century within your own family.

Nick, before it leaves our world class factory. This type of certification ensures that your product has appreciable value in antiquity as fine art.

Art Nouveau Door Hand Rubbed Stain Finish Details
The meticulous finish has been done in age old technique, using a 23-step hand rubbed process. We begin with fine hand sanding, and infused open grain hand applied stains. That puts the finish in the wood not just sprayed on it. This allows for the fine natural wood grains to show to perfection. There are then 20 additional steps requiring the application of wax, oils and lacquers with curing times between each process. This method is performed on all furniture and door wood surfaces inside and out. This tried and tested finish detail is required in the making of a one-of-a-kind, family heirloom quality product that meets world class investment quality standards that will stand the test of time. This process is the only way with little maintenance and the simple process of cleaning with oil will allow for a beautiful natural patina that will make this door more beautiful over time.
It is our belief that our combination of top quality materials and master hand craftsmanship allow us to offer a quality of product that is unmatched anywhere, at any price. In fact, we are so confident in the quality of our products and craftsmanship that we guarantee everything forever.

Art Nouveau Door Historical Design Inspiration
Jules Lavirotte studied at the Ecole nationale superieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris, the most prestigious art school in France. His building at 3 Square Rapp is an unusual mixture of architectural pieces including a turret and individually styled balconies where no two are the same. His whimsical approach to the wrought ironwork on all of his buildings is well known and he included that ironwork in his doors. The flamboyance of the Art Nouveau style combined with his daring and intricate designs makes all of his work unique and recognizable.This Art Nouveau wine cellar door is artist H.J. Nick's modern interpretation of of one of Jules Lavirotte's most famous doors. Inspired by the door found at 3 Square Rapp in Paris, France, this modern, art nouveau style door is sure to turn some heads. Lavirotte, who is famous for his flamboyant, Art Nouveau style of architecture, built the original door and building in 1899.
We took that ironwork and art nouveau style of his door and adapted it to a more modern doorway shape and size while keeping the inspiration in the forefront. Our master blacksmiths created the delicate curly cues without making them overbearing, letting the flow of the door lead your eye. The hand forged door pulls fit seamlessly into the swirls of the door and our carvers' work. Celebrate your whimsical side and being a little bit of Paris home with you with this door as the grand entrance to your home.
