In this long lasting reign of minimalism, modernism and plastic - elaborate wall moudlings, original features, arches and other fancies have really been a thing of the past. However,  there is starting to be a growing appreciation for these features with people even attempting to emulate an original, elegant moulding in a modern build flat. Mixing original period features (or recreating them) and pairing them with modern furnishings can create a very modern, sophisticated look.
