#4 is unique; I didn't notice the beams at first. Maybe because their design matches the fireplace and the shelves surrounding the TV. Cool design!

Coffered beams were really designed in the classic roman greco empires period. They were popular during the Renaissance era and Neo Classical. They work best in tall ceilings of large rooms. Because of the beams, they can have a heavy feel to the room, especially is ceilings are 8-12'.

The ones I've seen that were really awesome were in castles and large government building rooms in Europe. Beautiful architecture if done right.

I think of myself as a mid century modernist, until I look at something like number 1. I think I’d like two houses, so I can have my cake, and eat it too.
