Evermore Homes
Wooden doors like this one were common in old Indian homes. There carve intricate designs on the wood, and even use brass studs and ornamentation. The antique doors are difficult to find and expensive, but some indian furniture websites may have pieces that that may deliver. If you have someone visiting India, or willing to transport from India, you may get better designs and deals.

Thank you for the prompt response. It is a beautiful door. Looks as if it goes even further down into the dungeons!

These doors are very popular in the Middle East. Many people use the doors and even have tables made from them.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Create a nice seating area for the big-screen television and share light between rooms to keep the basement light and bright.
Shawn Gauthier added this to 10 Tips for Decorating a Renovated Basement
3. Light up shelves for function. See which other areas in your basement, such as bookshelves, might benefit from extra lighting. “You can easily create drama in a built in shelving space by adding lighting to highlight family collections or prized artwork,” says Hullinger.
Allison Lind Interiors added this to How to Get Your Basement Lighting Right
Another creative way to add lighting to a basement without losing ceiling height is by consigning electrical and plumbing lines to a soffit that runs around the perimeter of the room. You can insert recessed cans into the soffit or affix surface-mounted fixtures to the side. (Both tactics are shown here.) This approach lets you raise the ceiling in the center of the room, which you can then light with floor or task lamps to create a sense of intimacy.
