What is it?
Accordingly to Wikipedia, Coffered ceiling is “a series of sunken panels in the shape of a square, rectangle, or octagon in a ceiling, soffit or vault. A series of these sunken panels were used as decoration for a ceiling or a vault.”
It can be used as a decoration motif by bringing sophistication to a plain room. It reflects the class of the royal palaces by building decoration, creating a very elegant scenario. This is not recommended for low ceilings due to the decreasing the ceiling height.
