These interior privacy shutters were designed and built for a client in an old neighborhood in Washington DC. The window looks out into an alley and provides most of the light for the dining room. Because of this, shoji paper was incorporated to give the shutters a translucent quality. The design took inspiration from Frank Lloyd Wright, shoji screens, and mid century modern home decor.
Cherry, shoji paper, stain, polyurethane. Washington, DC, January 2020.
