Dressing up a window is an art and if that window sits behind the sofa then it needs extra attention. Curtains could become cumbersome to handle, so the screen comes to add style and comfort. Above the window an open shelf is made which is used as a showcase. The simple chequered diwan cover of the family space gets it colour from the cushions thrown on it, once again for comfort and adding colour and style. Lights seeps in thrown the screen and from LED light fixed above the window to make the space shine.
