Shoji Design Guide
Shoji Screens and Doors take components from the traditional Japanese aesthetic and combine them with modern designs to create a contemporary piece to suit any space or requirement.
Shoji Screens and Doors have been producing elegant traditional Japanese designs since the very beginning. The key feature to traditional designs is vertical timber running through the unit creating small inserts across the face of the piece. It is these distinctive small squares that define the Japanese style and convey a sense of order in their design.
Shoji Screens and Doors are at the forefront of modern design. Collaborating with customers to produce made to order and unique pieces. Whether you require subtle privacy, a single unit or an eye catching centre piece, Shoji Screens and Doors will deliver.
