Corbels, as an architectural element, have been around for many years. The word cor•bel (kôr'bəl, -běl') is defined as:
n. A bracket of stone, wood, brick, or other building material, projecting from the face of a wall and generally used to support a cornice or arch.
[Middle English, from Old French, diminutive of corp, raven (from the similarity of its shape to that of a raven's beak), from Latin corvus.]
Corbels, once used as a protruding supporting shelf in architecture, have become a much used embellishment in modern homes. Though used aesthetically, corbels can be made to support counters, shelves and mantels. Range hoods have in recent years been sporting corbels of every size and stripe.
