USG True® Wood Renditions™ Ceiling Panels: Art Meets Modern Ceiling Design
Balancing a modern look with the warmth of raw building materials has
been an ever-growing trend in interior design. Millennial
tastes are driving this development; while Millennials look for
sleek lines and modern amenities in their homes, they also crave
rustic touches like real wood. This trend has recently extended beyond
homes into offices, restaurants and hotels.
USG has been helping designers stay on top of this trend with
products like USG True® Wood Ceiling Panels. This year, USG enhanced
that popular product by adding unique design elements with the new USG
True® Wood Renditions™ Ceiling Panels—a product that merges the beauty
of natural wood with artful design.

think. Mahony said, “We wanted the design process to be easy for
architects and interior designers, so we created an online grid
design system where they can plan their project.” Once that design
is input, the manufacturers at USG ensure that the grain of the wood
veneers aligns to make installation easy.
The patterns on TWR are inspired by famous designs
There are eight distinct patterns on the 2’x2’ TWR panels.
Some are made of swirls, others boxes, and some deco design
elements. While they all look very different, they share one thing
in common: the designs are loosely inspired by renowned
“We wanted to tailor this product to the
taste of our architect and interior design community,” said Scott
Mahony, Ceilings Product Designer at USG. “We thought that by taking
inspiration from famous architects, the product would resonate with
Currently, there are no other wood
veneers ceiling panels on the market that offer unique design
