A coffer ceiling is a sunken panel structure and can be in a square, rectangular or octagonal shape. This type of ceiling is a means of decoration
that gives shape or definition to a room. These types of ceilings are normally found in larger, older or very expensive home or offices. The Roman
Pantheon is an example of a coffered ceiling that is round or a rotunda dome shape that is quite impressive even by modern standards.
