Coco Chanel was a great fan of Chinese or Coromandel screens and it is believed she owned 32 folding screens.
“I’ve loved Chinese screens since I was eighteen years old…I nearly fainted with joy when, entering a Chinese shop, I saw a Coromandel for the first time…Screens were the first thing I bought…” (Quoted in “Chanel Solitaire” by Claude Delay – Gallimard – 1983 p.12)

I am hoping to revive the love of the screen and bring a range to suit everyone's home and style -
whether they be elegant, coastal, arty or cool.
Any requests or suggestions?
