Screens have made a comeback, and we have 13 beautiful ones just for you


As apartments become compact in size, having dedicated single-purpose rooms is becoming a thing of the recent-past. And if you have a single room that has to be used for dual purposes then a room divider, or screen, is the décor accessory you need in your design arsenal. These nifty pieces of furniture, named both for their form, as screens, and for the function, as room dividers, will help you make stylish use of your space. In the 70s and 80s, it was quite a trendy item, albeit as heavily carved wooden pieces, but it quietly vanished. Till now, that is. Recently, the décor companies have begun reintroducing this product in eye-catching and very elegant forms. Designers have experimented with the material, and even form of this piece, while interior stylists are using it to define spaces in an interesting way. It adds a dose of modernism into a chic contemporary home. We’ve assembled a collection of some of the snazziest in the market; even if you don’t need one you may still want to buy it.

It can also be added to your décor as a statement piece considering it has quite a unique silhouette.
