Most clocks are mass produced now using cheaper materials such as plastic and metals. Most Americans find that clocks are cheaper then most paintings to help fill their empty walls. They also are a status symbol and bring elegance and character to one`s surroundings.
Large Wall Clocks - A Bold Focal Point. Today, large wall clocks are a "must have" for the decor of any room. They can create a bold focal point in your home or office while they serve as a practical and functional timepiece. In addition to serving a purpose, a decorative clock will add warmth and beauty to your home, and it will become a valued and cherished accessory. These timepieces come with Roman numerals, standard numbers or some other unique and stylish system, but they are still very easy to read from some distance across the room. Many colors, textures and designs are available. Most are battery operated to eliminate an unsightly electric cord dangling on the wall.
In the living room, traditional styles rule the day, but traditional styles have been taken to all new levels. With an array of natural and man made materials all types. styles from the past, present and future can be echoed with ease, and at reasonable prices. Very large clocks with roman numeral faces can make a dramatic statement over the fireplace or fill a huge undecorated space on a wall that needs breaking up. Mirrored backgrounds clocks are also popular for the living room. A tall, elegant wall clock with chimes and a pendulum is also a popular choice.
Color. In my experience decorating, it is best to stick to traditional colors for traditional objects. Plain colors or natural tones are generally safe, or otherwise ensure that at least one color area of the clock matches one of the dominant colors in the room (i.e. white walls will blend smoothly with a white face, even if the clock surround is another color).
The first antique wall clocks were called lanterns. They were made out of brass, very heavy and were hung on walls. The concept of personal clocks was introduced in the 17th century.
