Doors have functioned not only as means of entering a home or building but also as a means to making an artistic statement of the time. We all think very little of approaching the place we reside or work in and of performing the common task of turning the doorknob, pushing the door open and walking into our destination. With a focused view on history, we can see that a door represents much more than a mere entryway, it speaks richly of the culture of the generation. It has also been used in the English language metaphorically to conceptualize unrestricted opportunity.
Doors have migrated through the Jacobean and Tudor period of 1485 to 1625, and have seen structural and placement changes indicative of the need to keep intruders out. The doors of this period were made of heavy wooden planks with oak moldings and intricate carved details. Then as time progressed in the 1600’s to the 1700’s, the Baroque period with its plain and simple, carved doors sometimes contained expensive iron and brass features, and took the front and center stage of the epoch. From the colonial period & to the American Victorian period and moving forward to the Modern Movement and Contemporary Era to now, doors have seen changes reflective of the functionality and the needs of the culture.
