IONIC ORDER Ionic shafts were taller than Doric ones. This makes the columns look slender. They also had flutes, which are lines carved into them from top to bottom.

A closer view of the capital of an Ionic pillar, though it has been modernised and repainted.

A close up view of a Greek Ionic column. Columns like these were very intricately designed, and a huge part of Greek architecture.

The Ionic order originated, unsurprisingly, in seafaring Ionia in the early 6th century BC. Culturally, the Ionians were thoroughly Greek and quite naturally they spoke Ionian, a Greek dialect.

I'd like a set of wooden Ionic columns like these, carved and placed in our farm house.perhaps to separate the living and dining areas.
