Folding Screens

Folding screens are one of those decorative elements that, while they probably aren’t a necessity for most rooms, can have a wonderful impact. Whether used to separate two distinct sitting areas in a large living room, to provide privacy to a small studio apartment, or for pure decorative effect, the folding screen is often the unsung hero of many spaces. We recently designed an upholstered screen for a client in Brooklyn to hide a coats and boots area at the ground floor entrance. We especially love screens behind beds, like in this image, below. This screen was customized by adding lighting directly to the upholstered front.
