Jules Lavirotte Inspired: Custom Fine Art Door By H.J. Nick
Custom Door Design from modern art nouveau - Our original craft door, based off famous architect Jules Lavirotte, is one of our most requested designs. Rich with history, our lead designer, H.J. Nick, adapted Lavirotte's ironwork, and added a wide contemporary arch, to create a custom exterior door that brings flare and whimsy to any home.
Paris 1899 - French Door Design for a Changing Era
In the 19th century, many artists, craftsmen, and architects became discouraged by the amount of poorly made objects imitating earlier periods. Good craftsmanship was being neglected, and Lavirotte was among those who sought to establish a unified visual vocabulary that moved away from industrial production. After studying at the most prestigious school in France, the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Lyon, he went on to create nine buildings, still standing today in Paris. His most famous exterior door design, located at 29 Avenue Rapp, incorporates whimsical wrought iron grills and daring curves along the window frames and wood carvings.
