Wood partitions are more than bare functional panels. Available in a wide range of models, they can become the focal point of a room. Tall or medium-sized, slim or thick, light or heavy, the items fit wonderfully in modern interiors. We’ve browsed over the internet and collected the most astonishing and versatile examples from the market. My favorite wood partitions are those that turn into vegetal walls. Flowers and other climbing plants interknit with the structure, providing a natural infusion of herbs. Special effects result if you place lighting spots nearby. Add some shelves and you will get a stylish library in your living room. See? Their functions adapt easily to our needs! Explore the collection and let us know what works in your home too.

In an public space, wood partitions create special visual effects. Here, these tall, thin boards cover the wall, thus marking the entrance in an elevator. Their wavy look also add dynamism to the interior.

Wood partitions turned into vegetal walls

This frame like structure divides the restaurant in two areas, offering intimacy to the guests. Although it looks like a simple decorative element, the designer knew how to make use of space smartly. The shelf holds 6 pots with greenery, but it can also stand for books, candles, sculptures. The screen made of tree branches makes the space feel very natural.

Playing with altitude

In tall residences, height becomes a problem if it is not controlled well. For example, the space may feel overwhelming, bare naked, austere. Or, if it does not receive natural light, it’s quite difficult to make it feel cozy. In this case, the wood partition adjusts the heights of the interior. As you can see, a very interesting relief resulted on its surface.

Divide the sleeping area in two

A bedroom that features a bathroom or a powder room is a luxurious one. You usually need a room nearby, but look how the problem is solved with a wooden partition. The one installed behind the bed has a double function. On one side, it holds two reading lamps and a thin sculpture, while on the other, the mirrors and the sinks.

Painted in white

We said ‘wooden partitions’, but it is not necessary to choose the natural look. If your living room is furnished in white – as the one above -, then why not painting it all? This flowered partition fits perfectly there and it became an ornament in itself.

How does it work in working spaces?

In fact, I believe this was one of the first functions a wooden partition had. Cost friendly and versatile, the screens easily divide an open space into a multitude of private working ‘rooms’. As this industrial space felt extremely high, the designer opted for long icicle pendants.

The honeycomb

I like the honeycomb shape because it gives an organic infusion to the space. Moreover, it also makes the room feel playful and very dynamic. Whenever I am in a waiting room with honeycombs, I am tended to visually reorganize or extend the pieces of the puzzle.

Straight, vertical lines

We are not always looking for striking visual effects. A panel of simple straight lines works very well in a modern room. In this case, it separates the kitchen from the dining room, while also adding altitude.

These straight vertical lines also feel comfortable in a bar or at the reception of a hotel.

Bookcase or partition?

Both! The wooden partition above is also a wonderful bookcase with generous shelves for books, magazines, vases and decorations. It is quite difficult to find the perfect size matching your living room, so try a custom pre-order. However, playing with glass or translucent Plexiglas is catchy.

The rustic flavor

Indeed, the flavors of rustic are unique. This partition reminds me of the cattle houses and I like its rough beauty. It goes very well in chalets or country side houses, but also in an elegant living room that needs striking contrasts.

Shelves, shelves…

Discreet and elegant, shelves are a very stylish solution when you want to separate various areas in your house. Here, a splendid reading corner resulted nearby. This bookcase features a geometric design; it makes the room feel tidy and well organized.

Combine a flower box with a separating wall and you will have a functional item in your garden. Just imagine the climbing plants covering the wooden structure … an amazing vivid picture will beautify your courtyard.

A wooden partition replaced the common handrail of the stairs. It also made the living room intimate, offering protection for noise.
