The beauty of sliding Shoji Screens originated in Japan as lightweight, wood framed translucent paper panels used as sliding doors and room dividers. The delicate latticework frames embody simplicity and sophistication, efficiently harnessing space and diffusing natural light throughout the home.
Cherry Tree Design has enhanced the charm of the original shoji designs with the utilization of solid American hardwoods and durable, washable facings.
Traditionally, Shoji contain grid work on one side with a thin paper glued to the back of the screens, which was replaced every Japanese New Year. Our In-Stock and Custom Shoji feature double sided grid, which may be removed for cleaning or to change the facing. When a single-sided solution will do, consider our new Quick Fit Shoji products, which can be built to your exact dimensions and feature an innovative wedge system to secure the facing to the backside without the need for messy gluing.
Available in four standard sizes, built in solid American Cherry, our pre-built shoji can be configured for over 150 applications, including room dividers, closet doors, patio door treatments and sliding doorways.Plan & Order Now →

It's worth doing right. When a board gets pulled down from the shelf or the facing is uncurled off the roll, discerning craftsmen take the time to look and feel to make sure the quality meets our rigorous standards.
We know that to make the finest shoji available, you have to pay attention to the details. Consistent color, grain and flatness are critical measurements of an heirloom quality shoji frame, designed to last for generations. We have long standing relationships with lumber providers that know we're picky, but can appreciate our intimate understanding of the material.
Much of our facing material for the interiors of the shoji comes straight from Japan, where shoji is an integral part of traditional Japanese home living. Hand-pressed rice papers began the tradition of shoji making centuries ago, but modern processes result in a more consistent and durable product, designed for the rigors of the American home.Explore Materials →
