We stumbled on the traditional Japanese noren the other day when we were gathering Curtain Space Dividers from Apartment Therapy and Beyond. We're now smitten with the flat, two-panel textiles and have gathered a few more for your reference...
• 1 a beautiful four-paneled noren at Brooklyn textile gallery Sri Threads
• 2 Cherry Blossom Noren from VivaTerra
• 3 a mod fabric noren on Whip Up via Curbly
• 4 an in-depth tutorial on how to make your own at Janome
• 5 a printed noren by Supercozy
We think norens are a perfect tried-and-true small space solution. Their flat, spare design makes them a streamlined addition to small apartments and their multi-purpose use means they'll work time and again whether your need is for a gauzy window covering, door panel, or room divider.
