Although most of us desire large rooms, there are various settings in which a division in space is required. For instance, a large office where there are multiple employees, often some type of divider is used to separate the workers in order to provide them with their own workspace, as well as to decrease other environmental distractions such as noise from telephones ringing, etc. The home is also another area where privacy is sought, such when a separate room may not be available for a home office. There are many ways to divide open space, economically, with a decorative touch.
Room partitions or dividers come in an array of designs and materials, which can be used indoors, as well as outdoors. Local retailers such as Lowe’s or Home Depot carry room dividers that are constructed from wood, silkscreen, and metal to name a few.

As a movable divider, with a contemporary look. Using three 3 40-60 watt light bulbs, this divider lamp will provide ample lighting.
