I read a review about this item saying it muffles kitchen sounds and that is what I wanted. I moved from my home to an apartment and the kitchen is slightly open to the living room and the fridge is noisy so I wanted this to help muffle that sound. It does not muffle it at all. It is an attractive piece and not flimsy but no benefit to muffling sound and so no use to me. But again, a pretty piece. I ored red the rise one.
I needed a tall screen to muffle sound in a large dining area...and it is perfect. The only issue that I have with it is that the color is more red than I had anticipated (I ordered rosewood) but fortunately it works just fine. The jute seems to help with sound absorption. A great addition to the room.
First off, the delivery was so fast I couldn't believe it! I ordered it and it arrived in 2 days! This is just one of the reasons that I am a repeat customer. I have a large living room with a unique spot in the room which is a door panel made from drywall, framed, and painted that slides into the wall to become part of the wall. It hides a storage area that is above the basement stairs and it is awesome for storing my Christmas decorations. However it is a weird configuration and has always bugged me. I bought this screen to hide it and it couldn't be more perfect as part of the corner of the room. I was able to put it up right away and hung a Christmas canvass from it. I received many compliments on it when I hosted my family on Christmas day. Thanks Overstock!
