The Roman Ionic Column is perhaps the most unique. It is the only classical column to break free of a canonic, or cylindrical capitol. The Ionic column's capitol is its crowning glory and what sets it apart from the rest. It features a flattened scroll with curling ends or volutes.

The Roman Ionic Column conjures images of bold and stately buildings, of institutions and meeting places where decisions are made and formal ways adhered to. Today, the Roman Ionic Column enhances with an air of sobriety and elegance. It is a superb and defining addition to exterior entranceways, and much more. The traditional number of 24 flutes and a lengthy height of eight shaft diameters gives the Roman Ionic Column a graceful and detailed appearance.

The distinguishing features of the Ionic Order are the scrolls that decorate the capital of the wood column shaft. These scrolls derived their intriguing shape from the shell of the Nautilus. The most common representations of the Ionic Order include wood columns with 24 flutes separated by fillets that are about one-third their width. Ionic shafts are placed on decorative Attic Bases. Customarily, the Ionic Order column height including capital and base is nine diameters. A prime example of the Ionic Order as it was used in Rome is the Temple of Fortuna Virilis. These wood Architectural Columns are among our most Popular.

Ionic Columns were the first to feature the decorative Attic Base. With an extra ring of molding, this elegant base accents the intricate Ionic Capital.

The Ionic Columns may be ordered specifying Vignola's architecturally correct dimensions, or in custom combinations of height and width. Although usually requiring the standard tapered shaft with twenty-four flutes, an Ionic Column may also come smooth or non-tapered. The standard Ionic Capital is often substituted with the popular Scamozzi Capital.
