Ekena Millwork Ashley Ceiling Medallion with Light Fixture

Tim and Katie from Canton, Michigan sent in gorgeous pictures of their completed ceiling medallion project. They purchased a couple different ceiling medallions, but to keep this post brief, the one we chose to focus on was the Ekena Millwork Ashley Ceiling Medallion.

Delivered in a primed white, the two of them decided to paint it. Katie, an interior designer, went ahead and chose the antiqued bronze and flat gold paint for the medallion. It looks stunning. Perfectly matching the lighting fixture, the newly added medallion truly ties the room together.

Our ceiling medallion collections are modeled after original historical patterns and designs. Made out of lightweight yet durable solid urethane, the medallions are perfect for easy installation. With a couple of screws and adhesive glue, the medallion can be installed to its proper place in a jiffy.  They are fully primed and ready for your paint. Finally, these ceiling medallions are in stock and ready for immediate shipment!

Ekena Millwork Tristan Ceiling Medallion

Martin from Wheaton, Illinois purchased an Ekena Millwork Tristan Ceiling Medallion not too long ago and just sent us his finished project picture. Wow. It looks amazing.

He painted the ceiling medallion an antique bronze color to match the light fixture. There was a seamless transition between the end of the ceiling medallion and the beginning of the light fixture. The fine details of the ceiling medallion mimicked the wrought iron braces of the light. Martin did a wonderful job on his project by making every detail count.

The Ekena Millwork Tristan Ceiling Medallion comes in a standard factory primed white color that is easy to paint or apply a faux finish. However, there are so many more options to choose from that are available online. Customers can pick a colored finish, whether or not the medallion is split in two or whether there is a center hole drilled out. The combinations are endless, so finding the right ceiling medallion for your next home improvement project will be easy.

Behind the Scenes: Two-Piece Ceiling Medallions

Our warehouse team is incredible. They assemble, cut, drill products all day long while doing quality control over packaging. This week we are going to check out the custom operations behind the custom two-piece ceiling medallions.

From a consumer standpoint, assembling the perfect ceiling medallion with the perfect light fixture can be a difficult task. Even if there is a pre-cut hole in the middle of the ceiling medallion, there is the likelihood that the light fixture cannot fit through without scratching the sides. Or it is too frustrating with all of the wires that are poking out in all sorts of different directions. Admittedly, it can be a tricky task to assemble the dream ceiling medallion and light fixture combo.

The solution: two piece ceiling medallions!

Two-ceiling medallions make home improvement projects a breeze. Our warehouse team receives the customer’s ceiling medallion order and notes that it is to be cut in half. Selecting the correct ceiling medallion off the shelf, one of our team members uses a scroll saw to split the medallion. It is important to note that the cut must be straight and pass quality control to be approved to ship to our beloved customers.

Check out the pictures below of the split ceiling medallion.

A Fresh Take on Ekena Millwork Ceiling Medallions & Rosettes

Ceiling medallions are known to be accents to beautiful light fixtures, but that is not the only use they have!

Our recent customer, Lorraine from Maspeth, New York purchased multiple medallions and rosettes from the Ekena Millwork line and used them to decorate her room. She painted them to match the colors of her bedspread and we thing it looks absolutely perfect! The medallions and rosettes add character to the wall behind the bed and the color definitely makes them stand out!

The Ekena Ceiling Medallions are durable, yet lightweight because they are made from high-density urethane. When the product is ordered, our warehouse team puts a coat of primer for the customer to easily paint or apply a faux finish. Additionally, customers can install the medallions with two easy steps of adhesive glue and fasten with a pin nailer. Finally, the medallions are in stock and available for immediate shipment!

Ekena Millwork rosettes make the project by our customer picture perfect! The small rosettes beautifully contrast the larger sizes of the ceiling medallions. Like the medallions, these rosettes are made  of solid urethane thus making them both lightweight and long-lasting. Typically, rosettes are used to accent pieces of cabinetry, furniture, and other pieces of moulding, but with Lorraine’s project, that was not the case. Those rosettes simply became the perfect wall décor! Finally, the Ekena Millwork rosettes ship within 24-72 hours so they are delivered to customers in a promptly manner.

Beautiful Ekena Millwork Ceiling Medallion with a Chandelier

Our customers are a creative bunch of people; they often amaze our team with their unique takes on the architectural products.

From Clinton Township, Michigan, Yasser purchased the Ekena Millwork Ashford ceiling medallion for his home. More common than not, customers match the ceiling medallion with a nice chandelier. Arthur did this, but with a more creative look to it. He used black spray paint and chalk to create this uniquely beautiful look. The ceiling medallion looks gorgeous with the chalk and paint finish, but the addition of the chandelier simply astounded us. Ending with a good note, the customer let us know that he “loves the ceiling medallions.”

Our ceiling medallion collections are modeled after original historical patterns and designs. Our artisans then hand carve an original piece. Being hand carved each piece is richly detailed with deep relief, sharp lines, and a truly unique touch. That masterpiece is then used to create a mould master. Once the mould master is created, we use our high-density urethane foam to form each medallion. The finished look is a beautifully detailed, lightweight, solid construction, focal piece. The resemblance to original plaster medallions is achieved only by using our high-density urethane and not vacuum formed, “plastic” type medallions.
