Racetrack Oval Rose Dome

Thursday, November 20th, 2014


At 4′ x 8′ our custom dome is the central feature in a grand foyer of an exquisite condo located in down town Toronto. Colourful roses wound on a trellis create a garden feeling, and a geometric pattern matching the parquetry of the hardwood floor below frames the dome. The home owner (who is also a designer) selected the lovely range of coral hues in the roses to coordinate with other interior elements. The entire effect is striking.
