2018 – Statement Ceilings – The Fifth Wall
“…Ceilings afford great scope for decoration, yet it seems a strange defect in our modern method of decoration, that in many mansions the walls of the principal rooms are highly decorated with expensive papers, to be afterwards partly or wholly covered with pictures, looking-glasses, and bric-a-brac, and the floor is covered with carpets, to say nothing of furniture; but the ceiling spreads its broad blank waste of white above us, expressionless and inartistic to a great degree. The ceiling being the crowning glory of a room, and the part most seen, should be decorated with form and colour.” William Millar, London, circa 1890.
That was 1890 and the Design Trend for 2018 Statement Ceilings – The Fifth Wall is in!
According to Pinterest, “This is one we’re proud to say, we called back in April. Saves for “statement ceilings” went up by 310 per cent this year.
While not for the faint-hearted, a statement ceiling can transform a room from the top down. Ceilings will be seen. From creative moldings, interesting coffers, to fantastic paint and plaster treatments. The ceiling has become another surface equivalent to the complexity of a Persian Rug on the floor. No room will be completely finished without a ceiling treatment.
I am particularly excited to see this Trend. Here is my favorite statement ceiling medallion.

This custom finish creates a beautiful Statement Ceiling. Very dramatic with the black background which would be splendid on a white or how about a black ceiling. Black ceilings make the ceiling disappear giving a feeling of volume to the room.
The center can be cut out. We added a faceted crystal to further embellish the center.
Premium Finish calls attention to the urn and flower carvings.
