We have taken these beautiful abandoned decorative tin ceilings and turned them into art pieces, framed with wood. By the late 1870s, tin began to appear on the ceilings of homes and businesses in New York. Own a piece of New York history. We have a collection. The price reflects one.
This decorative art piece was sourced in the spirit of wabi-sabi, a Japanese philosophy that beauty can be found in imperfection and impermanence. It is a beauty of things modest and humble. A beauty of things unconventional. It is the opposite of vulgarity. The costs of achieving this kind of minimalism are seemingly inconsistent with its mission of aesthetic humility. This kind of luxury is for a select few: The Emperor of Japan had a wabi garden. Wabi is for people who already have a lot.
