History of Ceiling Medallions: 

Ceiling medallions have a long history in architecture and interior design, dating back centuries. They are decorative elements that are typically installed on the ceiling, often surrounding a light fixture or chandelier. Ceiling medallions serve both aesthetic and functional purposes, adding elegance and character to a room while also providing a cover for the electrical wiring of the light fixture.

The origins of ceiling medallions can be traced back to ancient Greece and Rome, where elaborate architectural details were commonly used in grand buildings. However, the widespread use of ceiling medallions can be attributed to the Renaissance period in Europe, particularly in Italy and France.
