MY SECRET: Partitioning the Space, Adding Zest to the Interior
When you browse through the website of Bellavista Collection – the brand known for its Italian luxury furniture, the product category named HOME DÉCOR is of particular interest. It contains three sub-categories: MIRRORS, HANDLES, and BELLAVISTA DETAILS. The names of the first two are quite self-explanatory; as to the third one, here you can find lots of things that add zest to an interior, making it look special. Some of them possess utilitarian value, too.
Let’s take a look at one of such pieces. It’s MY SECRET – a folding screen, which is equally beautiful and useful.
Did you know that folding screens came to us from ancient China? First, they were used mostly for preventing draughts: the Chinese word for a folding screen – “Ping feng”- consists of two hieroglyphs that mean “screen / blocking” and “breeze / wind”. Introduced to Europe in the late Middle Ages, Chinese folding screens became extremely popular with nobility and rich people. In the 17th and 18th centuries, lacquered folding screens, lavishly adorned with Oriental art, were a source of pride for their owners. By the way, Coco Chanel, an iconic XX century fashion designer, adored Chinese folding screens and owned as many as thirty-two of them.

Modern folding screens are extremely multifarious. As a rule, they are made up of several panels, connected together with hinges, so they vary greatly in size.
