Folding screens are versatile pieces that can fill in a lot of gaps...either in a room that needs partitioning or used up against a wall. This Designers Eye Wall Room Divider from Design Public creates a focal point in this image, but it could also be used as a headboard, in an entryway, or between two rooms.

Use it to balance other tall shapes, like the floor-to-ceiling windows in this image of the Ricci Room Divider from Crate and Barrel.
