The Shoji arrived on Monday. As I checked the crate for possible damage I thought, “If the screens are damaged inside this thing, I’d hate to see the other guy.”
Unpacking the crate was a snap. I brought the screens upstairs in just the interior packaging, which made it easy even with them still protected.
I opened the package and “Viola, they’re beautiful!” I wanted to get them hung right away to see how they’d look in place. Then I thought, “Oh no, no directions. (Oops!) But it quickly became evident that none are needed. The track and roller system on which they hang is really well designed and easy to install. Attaching or removing the screens is a snap.
The screens glide with incredible smoothness. And the look great! Thanks for the high quality product. They’re outstanding in design, fit and finish, ease of installation, and effortless operation.

Vacations are great but with the flurry before leaving and the flurry upon return I haven't posted in a month!
These custom shoji for Hansen Homes have ebony accents in the kumiko design. I believe we have a detail shot of this in the slide show on the website. The shoji are Fir with Cherry kumiko, Kinwashi Warlon paper. Approximate size 26" x 46"

A quick shop picture of a shoji screen that will be installed in a floor to ceiling framework to create a visual break in a bathroom. That fancy kumiko pattern we came up with after seeing a vintage six panel Japanese screen in an antique store in Port Townsend WA. What we came up with wasn't nearly as complex as that old Japanese screen but we tried to do it justice.
