You may not know the term, “Fleur de Lis” but you have likely seen this type of door. If you live in the South, particularly in New Orleans, you have probably knocked on a few in your time, even if you did not know it. These doors are historical, traditional, classic and absolutely stunning. The beautiful emblem that can be found on all of the doors goes back centuries, but its exact origins and what the symbol is exactly are still under debate.
New Orleans and the Fleur de Lis
The Fleur de Lis door is iconic in the New Orleans area. This type of door has been a part of the city’s culture since the people of La Nouvelle Orleans settled in the area and hung their Fleur de Lis flags. Over time, the style and substance of the doors have changed a bit but the general symbolism and the lovely floral theme has not.
Fleur de Lis Among the Most Popular Doors
Fleur de Lis doors are incredibly popular worldwide and there is good reason. They are absolutely beautiful, classic and elegant. The local secret is out.
At Doors of Elegance, we have a wide array of choices for you so that you can pick the perfect door for your needs. But, they all have a few things in common. They are all marked with an emblem that is likely based on the lily or iris and, though designs have changed and artists have interpreted the Fleur de Lis over the years, the beautiful simple floral symbol is always present.
