ALSO CALLED: Bamboo Ceiling Panels | Bamboo Ceiling Boards | Reed Wall Panels

Contrived from single reeds placed side-by-side, our Reed Ceiling Boards are glued onto a masonite board and used for enhancing ceilings and walls alike. Originally created to simulate the underside of a traditional thatched roof, these bamboo ceiling panels are now often used to add atmosphere to tropical or African settings.
