Plaster mouldings can be so much more than practical architectural features. The decorative plaster mouldings from Locker and Riley are designed to add a timeless sophistication to any building.
Our industry portfolio really is second to none. We've crafted decorative plaster mouldings, plaster coving and plaster cornices for Palaces, luxury properties, manor houses and hundreds of commercial buildings. We also specialise in creating intricate design pieces, such as plaster ceiling roses, alongside our plaster cornice mouldings.
Our plaster coving is developed from the very finest fibrous plaster to ensure it will be enjoyed for generations to come. Plaster coving is, essentially, intended to enhance the aesthetics of the room by adding the finishing touch to a design. This feature is also considered a key element of a period restoration project, as ill-fitting, out-of-place plaster coving could ruin the accuracy and authenticity of a historical design.
There are plenty of reasons why working with fibrous plaster brings the best results to a redesign or restoration project. Fibrous plaster has been used since the mid 1800's to create durable yet stunningly decorative plaster mouldings, coving and cornices. Made from a mix plaster of Paris, wooden laths, hessian scrim and water, fibrous plaster can be carved and shaped into exquisite designs that effortlessly enhance the interior of any property.
Unlike many other modern day manufacturers of plaster mouldings, the award-winning craftsmen and women at Locker and Riley prefer to utilise traditional techniques and production methods to ensure that each of their decorative plaster mouldings and plaster cornice mouldings are built to the highest standards. Creating or restoring plaster cornice in this manner is time-consuming, but we believe our unwavering commitment to these traditions shines through in the unrivalled quality of each and every installation from Locker and Riley.
