Truth in Decorating: Designers Milly de Cabrol and Alex Papachristidis debate the virtues of one of the best furnishings to add instant drama—and practicality—to any space.

Ask an interior designer for a list of secret weapons that give a home a sense of atmosphere, and a folding screen will likely rank high. “Screens really do decorate a room,” says Milly de Cabrol, a designer who loves the way these hinged panels add glamour to a space, especially when they are upholstered in luxurious fabrics or lacquered with exotic landscapes. In addition to the ornamental attractions, she praises their practical possibilities for artful camouflage.

“Everybody hides things behind screens,” de Cabrol explains. You can deploy one as a headboard and use the area behind for storing suitcases, set one up to mask guests’ coats during a party, or use one to cover exposed pipes.

Decorator Alex Papachristidis is similarly enthusiastic about their many roles. “Screens are great if you want to break up a large area or big flat wall, and they are wonderful when you are faced with structural issues,” he says, such as strangely angled corners. Plus, Papachristidis adds, they are ideal for experimentation: “You can play around with placement to alter the planes of a room and create visual interest.”
