really nice the space under the table to put your legs, but still gives the whole feel & look of sitting on cushions to eat as in Asia

What Houzz contributors are saying:

In the dining room: Japanese shoji screens are a wonderful way to let in the light without the sun's glare. It creates a peaceful tea-house ambiance.
Tearooms also feature a small, raised and recessed space — the tokonoma, or “place of beauty,” which serves as a design altar of sorts, showcasing a tearoom’s chabana arrangement along with a decorative scroll. The tokonoma is a centuries-old design element, but it’s still a perfect platform on which to display the traditional Eastern floral arrangement alongside a modern, personal design element, like a Western photograph or painting, to represent your home’s unique style.
Becky Dietrich, Interior Designer added this to Travel Takeaways: Design Inspiration From Japan
Because square footage comes at a premium, the Japanese are adept at creating flexible spaces. Shoji screens fitted with rice paper slide open or closed, based on whether the need of the moment is for privacy or open space. These screens also diffuse light in the softest way possible.
