A (modern) paravan :)

Yes. When you, like me, don't have installed things so you could hang your curtains, you get this. I do have persiennes but, I can't have them closed entirely cause, I need some light in the apartment. So, instead of undressing, like many ladies did with paravans before, I'm hiding from my neigbours across the street, who have balconies and, who might see me. P.s. these modern paravans are quite expensive, even though it's some wood and a fabric. To buy a real paravan, like that from older times, it costs almost as a small couch. Have you ever seen this or heard of it? I really thought they don't exist anymore

We used to have the bamboo looking type, completely different from this one. I't just rotten away after a couple of years.

Yes, maybe because of the material. Who knows what will happen to mine, after some time.

That is a beautiful one and needed for peeping neighbors. I have used them many times while changing clothes in my modeling days.

I think here we call them folding screens. The paravan you have is lovely and unique.

Thank you, I'm glad you like it. O, you must have an original one or some better one. That's awesome

@moonandstars Oh no, this isn't an original one. It's not quite the same as a paravan but it works like one. I didn't buy it myself. We've had it for maybe the last 20 years or so.

@ScribbledAdNauseum Wow. 20 years is pretty long time; it definitely has a value

I didn't know this title for it. It's a really a good solution. I love the idea of a room divider, too, now if I just had room for it

It's too short for dividing a room or to block a view from outside but, for me, it's enough. Thank you In your case, I'm sure every room is ok

Me too. I presume they were more classy and had a good quality than these new ones but, for a couple of years, it's not that bad.
