When creating our Riga Arched Cedar Door with Top Glass, we sought to capture the rich architectural history of Riga, Latvia, a UNESCO World Heritage site known for incorporating 19th century Art Nouveau style with architecture from the middle ages. Featuring our signature Twist Door Pull, the solid wood custom door design incorporates a unique half-moon top glass with fluid curves.
Bring the Rich History of the Baltic to Your Entrance or Interior Door
In the Middle Ages, Riga was a main hub for trade in the Baltic. As part of the Hanseatic League until the middle of the 15th century, the city gained prosperity through trade with eastern and central Europe. With economic and political prosperity, and, at the time, became the largest city in Sweden.

Art Nouveau architecture in Riga
After the 15th century, many buildings were lost to war and fire, and it wasn’t until the 1800s that Riga again rose to prominence. When the art nouveau movement began around 1890, Riga was a prime location to embrace this new architectural style. Today, Riga is recognized as having the finest collection of art nouveau buildings in Europe. To preserve its heritage, many old-world buildings mix in with he new, giving Riga a style all its own.
