Feng Shui, though defined as a pseudoscientific Chinese traditional practice, has dominated the Chinese culture for thousands of years. For the ancient Chinese, Feng-shui is more than pure superstition; it is how people harmonize the living environment with nature.
Take ventilation for example: in the winter of northern China, when strong airflow streams into the interior space, the wind would invade human bodies so the residents were prone to get sick. When medical resources were not ubiquitous, a simple sickness could lead to death, so the ancient Chinese emphasized how configuration can affect human bodies.
Using Screens Wisely Can Keep You Healthy and Refined
That’s how screens (room dividers) became crucial for Chinese interior design. They can not only guarantee private spaces but also block the sunlight and shield the wind. As civilization proceeded, they even become the symbol of high-born identity and the decorative element of interior space to elevate the taste, like this elaborate landscape table screen.
