One of the things we absolutely love about the ambiance inside stoneburner is the juxtaposition of dark and rich against bright and fresh. A prime example of this look is found in the bar, where a fresh moulded ceiling sets the backdrop against dark moulding and the rich, paneled walls at the back of the space.
The beautiful, textured tin ceiling panels are reclaimed from an amish school in wisconsin. To our knowledge, amish craftsmen made the tiles circa 1902. Like amish furniture, the tin tiles are made with the utmost care and quality – they’re expected to last a lifetime (and since they’re in pretty good condition for being around for more than 100 years, we think that reputation holds). Amish craftsmen shun modern technology in their lifestyle and workmanship, so these tin ceiling tiles are thoughtfully made with personal attention to detail.
The tin ceiling is cracked and worn in places beneath its painted varnish – part of the joining of old-and-new that’s integral to stoneburner’s atmosphere. Most of the ceiling is covered in stippled square panels edged in classically moulded framing and beaded edging. In between panels, the tin is moulded into long strips of raised curls that feature romanesque medallion shapes in an intricate pattern.
