We’ve seen some brilliant home lighting options, breathtaking bathtubs and some delightful mirrors, but it’s time to pay tribute to the oft-overlooked door. While most people stick with plain, rectangular doors that match the rest of their paint scheme, there’s something about a door that stands out from the rest that invites people in –if only to find out what could possibly be hidden behind such a stunning door.
Fitted with hidden pulleys, ball bearings, ropes and counter weights, the Curtain Door by Matharoo Associates gently curves out to resemble its namesake. Constructed from 40 sections of thick Burma wood and stretching 17 feet tall, you probably won’t be able to install your own Curtain Door any time soon, but that certainly doesn’t take away from the design’s appeal.

Lake Travis Retreat
Here’s a door that brings its own dramatic flair –a steel-framed, pivoting door that features glowing honey onyx tiles. The tiles are backlit with gentle LED lights and provide an unforgettable entryway to the breathtaking Lake Travis Retreat by Dick Clark & Associates.
This stunning glass pivoting door by Allen Bianchi is certain to attract attention, making your interior appear more like a gallery space than a mere residence. Open or closed it lets in ample natural light and makes the interior feel a lot more connected with the exterior of the home.
The only problem? You probably won’t want this as your front door unless you have a gated entry since it doesn’t offer much privacy.
