We have a small selection of interesting accessories from pots, stone Foo Dogs to architectural details, including fretwork panels:
Ancient Chinese homes had to contend with extremes of heat and cold, the fretwork panels allowing breezes in the summer to cool and the open panels were blocked with paper or fabric in the winter to block them. The fretwork panels also gave illusions of privacy and shade. Today they make a dramatic back drop and are often converted into room dividers. Smaller window panels make interesting statement pieces behind beds or indeed anywhere on the walls.
