My love for screens and partitions started with a visit to my best friend’s house way back in my childhood, as I sat in their apartment living room admiring their intricately carved out wooden partition shielding the dining area from my view. Since then I have been fascinated by the beautiful range of screens and partitions available in the market.
There are all kinds, from silk screens stretched by wooden bars, bamboo screens, intricate wooden carvings, cane to even metal work, glass and plastic/fibre options. Their usage is also versatile. While small apartments can use it to define spaces and provide privacy, larger spaces can use it to highlight decor. A wooden Jalli work screen will look great against a painted wall, showing the Jalli pattern in relief. Exotic silk screens add beauty and glamor to your interiors. Lets take a look at some of these options:

Many such screens and partitions come in a ready to use form, be it a single screen or 2 fold, 3 fold or 4 fold, you can just pull them out of the box and unfold them. But other variety that require some amount of manual set up are also available and they provide a rather unique look. The Acrylic Panels that hang from the roof in an inter-linked manner is one such product.
The partition might serve a functional purpose of dividing the space into designated spaces of living and dining or lounge and study. But regardless of the functionality, many of the screen partitions available today add appeal to the design and visual representation of the house. They can be earthy and cozy or sleek and glamorous or sophisticated and hi-tech. Flexibility of movement is another great feature as these screens are not permanent fixtures, you can move them around to add variety to your interiors as and when you feel like it!
