<![CDATA[Many customers come to us here at Volterra because they’re looking for a way to take their room from good to great! And one of the best ways to do that is to look up. Few people realize the potential that their ceiling has. It’s more than functional space; it’s a blank canvas just waiting for a splash of creativity. Since ancient times, architects and engineers have used wooden beams to provide more support for vaulted roofs in large buildings. From the flying buttresses of gothic cathedrals to the support trusses of luxurious chalets, support beams are often linked with grandeur and space. However, modern building techniques often eliminate the need for extra support. That’s why today, many people opt instead for a faux truss that will offer the decorative aspect of tradition, without interrupting the function of modern structural engineering.
