Palladian windows have been a favorite architectural element for a centuries.
The arch is attributed to the Romans, but Palladio took the use of it to another level. Architects have long been interpreting it and incorporating the arched window into a series or interiors archways. Peter Pennoyer’s interior architectural elements are modern with a classical reference and stunning.
I think a rounded arch as a gateway to the outdoors is beautiful.
Nowadays many stores are quick to pick up on the classic reference to Palladio. Restoration Hardware has a Palladian Lamp
and Matouk has a line of linens called Palladio.
Isn’t it “everything that is old is new again”.
