Jon - You must have ESPN (
) because those are the exact moldings I liked when I found them 4 or 5 months ago. In fact I made a recommendation to AirBenji for his Esquire theater with the Memphis molding
he eventually purchased and installed in his theater that came from this same company.
The problem I ended up having is that I couldn't find a suitable Case, Chair, Base and Panel moldings that were in the same vein / style as either of these two crown molding styles. I know they can be painted to simulate my finished wood, but I am not aware how much that would cost on top of the high-cost of the molding itself.
Regarding the New York style Art Deco molding shown here....
I really like this style and see a variation of it being used for the verticals of my perimeter soffit similar to that found in the Bacon Race Theater here...
...and the Merrimont Trace theater
which has design elements take from the Bacon Race theater:
. . . only instead of using MDF with a router and roundover bit I would use flat veneered stock and a piece of panel molding on the leading edge to create a slightly more detailed cascade.
I haven't fully decided yet, but I am thinking that I will have the "cove" lighting mounted on the ceiling and pointed directly toward the vertical of the soffit to have the glow of the lighting cascade downward like this:
instead of the more traditional route of hiding the strip lighting behind crown molding and pointing the light upwards toward the ceiling like this as shown in StockMonkey's Desert Sunset Theater thread:
If any molding is easy to swap out, it would be the crown. Unfortunately Bosley molding does not have a similar sleek crown profile. But ultimately I can't focus on just one molding or another - I have to find a family of five different moldings (Base, Crown, Chair, Case and Panel) that have similar styles and characteristics to make a cohesive package. Even the InivitingHome.com website only has one or two specific moldings, but not a whole matching family of moldings between the different types....that's the tricky part IMHO.
I am traveling now, but on my desktop I have several other molding profiles from a few other companies that may work. I'll post them here in this thread when I am able.
Thanks for all the input and suggestions guys!Edited by TMcG - 1/8/13 at 12:53pm
