Wood, silk, lacquered or metal woven screens, we’ve seen them practically everywhere and we love it! The room dividers are definitely making a comeback and it’s a wonderful item to work decorate with. The depth or layers you can create with these decorative folding screens is amazing. Let’s see how we can spice up the room with these pieces.

Practical point of view
A lot of times people don’t see the value of a folding screen or don’t know the original idea behind this unique furniture piece. But for centuries, this item used to be for concealing and trapping heat. Today’s homes are less draughty so the practical use of a screen changed into more decorative uses.

Assembled over time
A screen is a piece that adds value to a space, it reveals more personality and gives more character to the interior. It may be only for decorative point of view, but we couldn’t live without them! One day it can be the backdrop for an art piece, and the other day it’s next to your daybed or functioning as a headboard. Or like Coco Chanel applied the antique Coromandel screen on the walls of her Parisian apartment.
We are crazy about the decorative folding screens, specially the ‘aged’ ones you find at antique markets in Paris, or in Milan or at one of our secret hotspots! We can find you a piece that ‘layers the look’, don’t hesitate to contact us.
