Grand Entrance Based On A Jules Lavirotte Door In Paris
This door is a recreation of one of Jules Lavirotte's famous Paris doors found at 3 Square Rapp. Lavirotte, who is known for his flamboyant Art Nouveau architectural style, built this building in 1899. 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 - 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.
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.
