Things are looking up: 5 NYC abodes with gorgeous vaulted ceilings

Reminiscent of European cathedrals and basilicas, vaulted ceilings are actually rather popular in high-end NYC apartments, where they come in all different styles and materials. Aside from lending a place some charm, they make a space appear bigger and more opennot that these dwellings need any tricks to look large.

We've never seen vaulted ceilings quite like the ones above the dining area in this $2.925 million Upper West Side penthouse. They're made of fabric. How cool is that?

The barrel-vaulted topper on the kitchen of this S37 million Greenwich Village triplex is made of brick, putting your little exposed-brick accent wall to shame. Leather bar stools, tile walls, a brass light fixture/pot rack, and a chocolate brown column complete the ye-olde-alehouse look. 

This $3.995 million Greenwich Village loft has a modern-meets-traditional vibe thanks to its over-11-foot vaulted ceilings and brick walls painted white. 

The vaulted ceilings are also about 11 feet in this full-floor Nolita loft, but look a lot more industrial, thanks to exposed pipes running along the length.
