       Coffered Ceilings

          In historic architecture, a coffered ceiling was created by arranging coffers (or framed boxes) in interesting configurations on a ceiling. The coffers were square, rectangular or octagonal and most often had deep recesses and were originally made out of stone. Eventually wood coffered ceilings replaced stone structures because a lighter weight material was more desirable. For centuries, it was thought that wooden coffered ceilings originated in the Loire Valley Chateauz of the early Renaissance period. However, in 2012, archaeologists discovered the concept of wood coffered ceilings in the ancient Roman town of Herculaneum, which was destroyed in 79 AD by volcanic eruptions along with Pompeii. In the 1800's many famous American homes such as the Frick House in Pittsburgh, the Studebaker Mansion in Indiana, and the Biltmore Estate in North Carolina used elaborate ceiling treatments, like wood coffered ceilings to create architectural interest. Back then only the wealthy could afford such luxury.

          Today we have the WOODGRID® Suspended Coffered Ceiling System which is both elegant and affordable. As a wood drop ceiling system it is user-friendly and versatile for all applications including new construction or remodel, residential or commercial. It installs much like a metal grid system with main runners and cross tees, but it is all wood. The drop-in panels are the coffers which create the depth. This system does not need to be attached to existing metal grid. Therefore, the layout and coffer size can be optimized for the particular space, giving each ceiling a custom, well-planned look.

          When it comes to decorative wood drop ceilings, we have been the experts for the last 25 years. We offer many styles and wood species allowing you to create a unique room. The drop ceiling concept allows you to have a stunning ceiling even in a basement where you might need access to ductwork etc. Over the years we have developed creative ways to work with lighting, venting, height changes, soffits, home theater components and other mechanicals that affect a ceiling. We have styles and ideas for high ceilings or low basement ceilings as well as cathedral ceilings and standard height ceilings. So bring us your ceiling design or ceiling ideas, and let us show you how to make them a reality.
