Columns have been an integral element of architecture for thousands of years, with the earliest forms used for supporting roofs of small buildings during the Bronze Age. A traditional column has three basic components, the base, the shaft and the capital. The base and capital are traditionally wider than the shaft, as it provided a stronger support for the structure. While load-bearing was their initial function, the Greeks an Romans turned the column into an art form, adding sculpted floral patterns, patterns and flourishes for decorative purposes.

If you're planning a wedding or an event that will look different from the standard occasion, you're likely looking at unique, non-traditional décor, music and venue. It is only natural that you'd want the cake stand for your event to be just as special. Cake stands available today are far from the boring, tired, barely-noticeable stands of the past years. Modern cake stands tend to be updated to suit the trends and styles of today and can therefore be used to effectively emphasize your event's theme.

After you've lived in a home for a while, it may need a little sprucing up. Or, perhaps you're just a little bored with the same look you've lived with for years. While you might want to completely redecorate or refurnish your home, that can be costly, and most people today are living on a tight budget, making a total interior overhaul impossible. Small changes to your home can make a major impact. Sometimes, something as simple as replacing your old, metal vent grilles with a much more aesthetically pleasing wood grille can make a huge difference on the look of a room.
