What Houzz contributors are saying:

The Chippendale balustrade can serve both decorative and functional purposes, as executed on this exterior staircase.
June Scott Design added this to 6 Basic Elements of Classic Garden Style
4. Cohesion. Repeating forms throughout a garden can help bring cohesion to a design. Here the sharp angle of the peaked roof is echoed in the pyramidal tuteurs, and the bold outlines of the planting beds relate to the patterns on the railing.

Chippendale: The geometric pattern is typically set within a rectangular frame and is often repeated. With careful mathematical calculations, a skilled craftsperson is able to construct the regimented balustrade, which is often found on porches, decks, widow walks and staircases.
