wood gates
Prowell's arrangement of the ancient Chevron Pattern--a design pattern that has appeared on works of unearthed pottery as early as 1800 B.C.

A few modifying lines and we have an Art Deco Motif that might be suited for the lobby of the Rockefeller Center or Chicago's Tribune Building or any of those phenomenal buildings and their elevator lobbies rising like a flourishing crop all over the country between 1921 and 1935. A very very short reign, given the lasting affect on the design world in the succeeding 80+ years.

So we have a combination of one of the globes oldest forms of aesthetic patterning, blended with one of the modern world's most influential periods to arrive at, well . . . at something intriguing.

* It should be noted that Garden Gates #11 is the only examples where the vertical stiles and horizontal rails are not a standardized 5-1/4" and 8-1/2". Why? Because there is such a network of joints within the body of the gate and because each of these joints contributes to the structural integrity of the whole, we do not rely so heavily on the primary tenons of the gate frame itself.

The earliest known example, dating to 1800 B.C.!!

There are comparatively few graphic designs in history more commonly replicated than the Chevron. A trend that seems to be experiencing yet another resurgence.

A ubiquitous fashion in the 1970's carried to interior paneling and exterior siding and yet, unfortunately for the Chevron, associated with what is aurguably that decade representing the bane of American architecture and design. Everything built during that decade must be razed and replaced until the entire decade has vanished from our collective memories. The decade of Twiggy, and Disco. Of I'm Okay, You're Okay.

The penchant for Chevron flooring. Quadrupling the number of joints prone to raising and cupping and easily the worst solution for solid wood flooring ever comprised.

One of the more shining examples. The morphing of the Chevron for the upper tiers of the Chryslers Building.
