Welcome! We are a small team of Artist/designers manufacturing lightweight room dividers, blinds, curtains and upholstery. Several of our projects have been featured on national TV – see the clips from the Chelsea Flower Show (BBC2) and Sarah Beeny’s Channel 4 programme which resulted in 10,000 website hits after only 4 minutes of exposure! Our room dividers have been particularly popular in Nottingham of course; we’ve sold almost as many in Nottingham as in London!
Our Japanese ‘Shoji’ panels require only a top headrail track which can be hung like curtains or top-fixed from a lintel or even a suspended ceiling, and we can employ almost any fabric or paper with the lightweight Obeche timber frames, so if you don’t fancy an Oriental look then you can go for something different- maybe a Moroccan or Aztec design? We have found that Nottingham clients prefer more patterned room dividers!
The room dividers are all hand-made, and the panels glide easily, stacking in front of each other, and can be removed in seconds. Most fabrics we use are easy to clean- we even have some that are impervious to water and can be steam cleaned! Look through our photo gallery where you can see just a few fabrics, from polyesters to pure silk.
Needless to say, we also make ‘normal’ room divider panel blinds using both blind fabrics and curtain materials- we have 5,000 fabrics to choose from; all are fine for installation within and in front of windows and all but the heaviest are ok for room dividers if it’s a suspended ceiling. www.japanesepanels.co.uk is our main site!
