You don't have to live with the crushing unsightliness that standard fiber drop-in ceiling tiles provide. There is another choice.  Have you ever wanted pretty coffered ceilings?  What about tin ceilings?  I know this post isn't pretty but you have to show the ugly to get to good design.

I first learned about this product working on the room below.  The FLOTUS office was plagued with typical commercial-grade ceiling tiles (see the Laura Bush era) and needed a style-update quick.

The molded ceiling tiles work the same as the fiber tiles but look so much better.
