I love this screen! I got it to hide a really ugly thermostat that is right in the middle of our dining room wall. It definitely hides the thermostat, and works as a big piece of art against the wall. The colors look exactly as they do in the picture - maybe even more vibrant. It was so easy to set up. I pretty much pulled it out of the box and stood it up. 1 minute. It does have the copywright info printed on the middle screen. Since it is towards the bottom, I don't really notice it much. My only concern is that since I have three small kids and a big dog, they may run into it and tear one of the screens. Because of this, I do fold it up and set it to the side when they are playing in the dining room which is very easy to do. Once again, I love this screen and am very happy with the purchase!
Although this screen is still beautiful, with no assembly required, the colors were not quite as pictured. It is very beige, or flesh color, over most of it. Her brown robe comes out almost the same color as their skin. It was just a little too bland. Also there is a manufacture logo right in the middle of the picture! It's towards the bottom where she's bending down, but still way too high up and not hidden at all. I was a little disappointed overall, but it did withstand the delivery man dropping it onto my balcony when it clearly says fragile!
It is a beautiful piece with colors as portrayed online. The only disappointing thing about this screen was the big copyright symbol, artist name and "1992" about six inches above the bottom. I can't fully enjoy the piece once my eyes start traveling downwards.
My Geisha Shoji Screen was beautiful! It arrived in a just a few days, and was all assembled. What a thrill to open the box, and see that it was just as beautiful as the photo portrayed. My son married a Japanese woman, and I plan on having the screen up (dividing the dining room from the living room) this coming Thanksgiving. I am a frequent Overstock customer, and purchasing experiences such as this one, guarantees that I'll be a repeater.
all i can say was i simply .madly liked it the moment i saw it. glad i did not wait too long to buy it. i have a room in my house, which i have decorated the way i want. and this was perfect, since most of my things have a oriental theme.
This 72-inch shoji screen is ideal for dividing an area. The hand-made from spruce wood screen is beautifully accented with two geishas printed on the paper. I have a very quaint little house and the screen fitted very appropriately between the arch-way in my living/dining room. It is very light and actually very elegant. The soft lighting from my living room gently exposes the craftsmanship on the screen. I made a good choice. The price was affordable too! I should have purchased two. The assembly was incredible. Out of the box and onto the floor! How easy is that?
