Folding screens, also called room dividers, are a non-permanent way of separating living spaces or of concealing things and they’re actually more versatile than that. They can also be used in a variety of other ways, including as decorative elements or headboard alternatives. Because of their incredible versatility, folding screens are an interior designer’s secret weapon which they use in a lot of creative and inspiring ways. Perhaps you could do the same. You just have to find the right design to work with.
Made of metal and pleated fabric, the Minima Moralia room dividers designed by Christophe de la Fontaine come in five different color options: powder-coated steel, black, white, bordeaux and champagne. Each divider is made of three symmetrical modules.
Glas Italia has some interesting designs too. The Haiku space divider is very chic and stylish, featuring a carved out pattern and a sleek and simple design able to adapt to a variety of settings and decors.
The role of the Painting divider is a multifunctional one. Its main function is that of a folding screen meant to offer privacy or to organize spaces. However, the artistic nature of this accent piece allows it to double as a decorative element and even as a mirror.

This is the Apparel divider, a folding screen/ coat rack which doesn’t really ensure privacy on either side but rather separates the spaces without visually dividing them. It features attached hangers for clothes and it also has a built-in mirror. The design is simple and a bit unusual but also very practical.
