Beautiful Decorative Finishes
Our beautiful decorative finishes are based on the Decorative Arts. The Decorative Arts is traditionally a term for the design and manufacture of functional objects. It includes interior design, but not usually architecture. The decorative arts are often categorized in opposition to the “fine arts”, namely, painting, drawing, photography, and large-scale sculpture, which generally have no function other than to be seen.

Faux painting or Faux finishing are terms used to describe a wide range of decorative painting techniques. From the French word for “fake”, faux painting began as a form of replicating materials such as marble and wood with paint, but has come to encompass many other decorative finishes for walls and furniture. Lancaster Painters Australia are highly skilled in applying faux painting techniques to produce award winning decorative finishes.
