History of Privacy Screens
Folding screens or privacy screens were first used in China centuries ago by royalty to serve as room dividers as well as for privacy. Later on, they were introduced in Europe in the late Middle Ages. Many Europeans, especially French, had an admiration for Chinese folding screens and they began importing large privacy screens that were lacquered and adorned with art. Many of these privacy screens were heavy and ornate works of art, making them quite expensive and unique.
Design of Tri-fold panels
