Custom Doors with Hand Carved Designs

Scottsdale Art Factory is happy to help customers in any corner of the world. This door was made for a family in Bucharest, Romania who wanted to replace their front and back doors. Even though we are half a world away in America, this customer chose us to create the perfect handcrafted work of art: a lion themed door that would stand out yet would also fit in with the surrounding styles. The lion head and scrollwork are intricately carved and beautiful hand forged wrought iron accents, including the decorative hinge straps on the exterior side of the door, give the door an elegance that a city once known as “Little Paris” deserves.

Bucharest is a city that has survived multiple rulers, alignments, natural disasters, and wars. The earliest written mention of the city was in 1459 in a document from Vlad Tepes III, better known as Vlad the Impaler. However, architectural findings show the city is older than that and that people have been settled in the area since the Roman Empire or earlier. Because of the occupations in two world wars and then Communist rule after the Second World War, most of the historical architecture was destroyed. There has been a long period of rebuilding and restoration after the Romanian Revolution of 1989 and there are some beautiful buildings and artwork in Bucharest today. Scottsdale Art Factory is proud to contribute to the beauty of this historic European city.
