I wanted to give an oriental flair to my "tea room" so I decided to get a shoji screen. I researched what was out there on the internet & this one seemed to be the nicest of the bunch. I did not want to spend too much money on it because of my limited budget so I knew that the quality would not be top-notch. It is not made from select wood. I think it is made with some kind of pressed wood which is the reason why it is so lightweight and therefore not a sturdy screen. That did not matter to me because I was planning to hang it up on my wall anyway. (Which is exactly what I did and I must say it looks real nice hung up about a foot off the floor)! I was not planning to use it as a room divider. It comes assembled so you don't have to do anything to it. The material used for the background feels like thin felt not paper-like which is fine. I was aware from reading prior reviews that the flowers were actually of a reddish-orange color which was exactly what I wanted. Overall, I am very pleased with this screen. It looks very classy & adds the perfect touch to my room. For the price, it is a nice deal.
