Compo - Historic Material

Decorators Supply is  widely recognized in the interior design and architectural community as manufacturers of the most extensive, authentic  and finely crafted carving ornaments in the industry. Our carving library exceeds over 13,000 ornaments spanning all major periods and style. 


From these carvings we manufacture beautifully detailed composition (“compo”) reproductions  utilizing a formula that dates back hundreds of years. In fact the famous English architect Robert Adams (for whom the Adams Style is named) utilized composition ornaments on many of his furniture pieces back in the mid – 1700’s,  and compo ornaments appear in the collections of major museums, including the Winterthur, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Museum of Early Southern Decorative Arts.
