Shoji Doors from inside bath at Going Green at the Beach Green Project in Snohomish, WA 2007  


The light coming through these bathroom doors creates a sensational

glowing effect. 


Durable new papers from Japan, designed especially for shoji screens, allow shoji doors to be used in all spaces. 


Seen from the other side, these sliding shoji doors and trim were made of eco-friendly Spaulted Alder for the Going Green at the Beach project in Snohomish, Washington in 2007.











This pair of bi-fold doors are hinged to open up into a "V" shape from the middle.  Bi-folds allow more space through the doorway than is possible with sliding doors.



This set of 5 shoji doors was designed to be a movable wall, where the doors both link and "stack."

Stacking Doors: Since each door is on it's own track, they can all be pushed back against the wall, thus allowing more open space in the 2 adjoining rooms.

Linked Doors: These shoji doors, have hardware that links each door, allowing the first door to pull the other doors in sequence.

Shakti Shoji doors can be made with a "hip board" made of solid wood or plywood at the bottom of the door (instead of rice paper).  The hip board works like a kick plate and provides greater door stability.




This graceful door design from Shakti Shoji is a screen door. It is made of recycled Mahogany and Cedar with bronze screen and custom handles and accents made of re-cycled copper.



Door Pulls

These are examples of the many types of door pulls that we offer.


This door pull is simply routed into the door frame.  This keeps the grain and figuring intact, which in this high character case, would be hard to match otherwise.


This "pocket door pull" is inset and is good for pulling a lead door in a series of doors.

It is not noticable from

the face of the shoji door since

the pull pivots to lay flush with the frame.


These imported wooden pulls are inset into the face of the door.

The top  left imported metal pull can be inset into the front face of a shoji door.  The brass pull can be inset into alead door, like the pocket door pull above.  The lion can be attached to a lead door or on a cabinet style door. Let us know If you have a particular pull you would like to use and we will work with it.


We can also make handles from the same material used to make the doors.  They can be made to any size you like. They easily blend in to the door and do not break the visual line like many other pulls. 

Because these are mounted onto the front of the door, they generally do not bypass the other door(s) completely.
