CurvTambour™, generically known as Tambour, offers the Architectural & Design community the Design Freedom to provide both flexibility and create spectacular accents for walls, columns and wainscoting.  Tambour can preserve the architectural style and design integrity, or allow the designer to create outstanding design concepts. Our extensive array of tambour profiles, materials and finishes will enhance about any architectural surface.   


Our Decorative Tambour has been selected for multiple uses such as, above chair-rail wallcovering, short wainscot function, cabinet shop incorporation in store fixtures, and woodworker’s applications in specialty use decorative products, such as tambour doors in solid wood or veneer, among others.


The Curvwood CurvTambour collection of decorative tambour is designed primarily for commercial use. However, due to our high quality and broad selection of profiles, colors and materials it is popular in select residential applications. From a building lobby, or boardroom, or accent wall to a beach house wainscot, New England cottage, or historical restoration - Tambour is it!

General Information

This is a wholesale website for professional Woodworkers. However, there is a small quantity and / or dollar minimum requirement on various products. Please see order information.  All sales by credit card only for immediate processing. Orders paid by company check may require additional time for bank processing. Sorry, no personal checks. This is not a retail site, we may charge for samples. Samples are only available as fall-off from past production. Samples are designed to show profile, the wood specie of any sample is only a general representation of that specie, it is NOT what your order will look like, as that raw material has been used, so exact specie in samples is not really required, only the profile, as professionals should be aware of variation in each wood specie. When possible we try to accommodate requests.
