Curved archway- advise needed

I have a curved archway in a hall. I would like to trim it out with some wood. How can I do this?? Do they make anything for this?

I found flexible moldings on the Web!!

Curved archway- advise needed

The most typical process I'm familier with is bending the molding using steam. Here's an example that I was able to quickly find with a google on bending molding: http://www.onlinetips.org/how-to-bend-wood-molding

I've got a couple of places in my house where a 2" tall piece of molding was somehow bent to outline a half oval window with an 18" radius.

A Google search will reveal arch kits - easiest way to do it, IMO.
