Base Selection

Tuscan Base

The Tuscan base derives its name from the last of the Greco-Roman columns, and it is a popular choice for installations with Tuscan and Doric column styles. The Tuscan base becomes a versatile foundation for the composite column of your choice. The base features a robust torus accented with smaller mouldings that create an attractive transition between base and column shaft. The convex torus rests upon a bold square plinth.

Attic Base

When you require a richly detailed base, consider the Attic base. Two convex mouldings define this base. Smaller mouldings accent the larger mouldings. The Attic base also includes a crisp square plinth. This base looks wonderful when paired with the smooth column shaft. The combination of convex and concave forms also compliments the fluted shaft. The Attic base creates a sense of balance when paired with one of our many beautifully detailed capitals. This base is often associated with the Ionic and Corinthian columns.
