About Federal Architecture

The Federal style, and its English counterpart the Georgian style, defined the architecture of the early American republic. The Federal style is derived from the neoclassical and includes the Adam, Regency and Jeffersonian architectural styles.

Federal Style Mouldings

Federal mouldings are typically composed using the ogee, fillet, ovolo, bead and quirk, and the other molding profiles of classical architecture. Its decorations and mouldings are less ornamental than Georgian but still typically include fine details.

Unless a room is fully paneled and left unpainted, Federal style mouldings are typically painted, while the doors are typically stained, and often engineered with exotic tropical hardwood veneers. Frequently, doors might be painted with faux bois - or wood grained, when the more expensive and authentic product was not available or affordable.
