Suspended Above: 22 Breathtaking Images of Ceilings

Themed Collections

12 September 2017

Posted by Cecily Eltringham

When you walk into a room where do you look? Left, right, maybe down – but it’s not often that we find ourselves glancing up to check what’s going on above our heads. Take a moment to try and describe the last ceiling you were under and you will probably draw a blank. In a world dominated by plain white ceilings, they have become a space that is often neglected. Sometimes, however, what is suspended above you is truly breathtaking. From the ornately carved ceilings of cathedrals, to mesmerising geometric patterns wrought in glass, they hold the power to fill you with a sense of awe. Here are 22 images of incredible ceilings that might just inspire you to look up from time to time.

On the ornate ceiling of the Council House in Nottingham, UK, gold rings, punctuated by glass windows, radiate out from a glass centre through which a dark sky is seen.
