Traditional screens are the latest must-have accessory
When it comes to furniture, versatility, it seems, is key. Which is what makes a screen so appealing, says co-owner of Domo Luxury Furniture Concepts Karen Robertson. "They offer privacy, boundaries and aesthetic elements, all without altering the structural components of a space."
A screen can create a room within a room, act as a movable wall, fill a corner, create privacy in a bathroom or bedroom, or simply serve as a decorative item.
Use it to introduce colour and texture, Karen says, "but, as with art, you have to love it because you're going to interact with it every day."
Lighting will affect how a screen works in a room. Position a screen to help bounce and balance light rather than create a shadowy corner.
