Shades of Japan is a small independent company specialising in hand crafted bespoke furniture and traditional Japanese Shoji.

Gardens and Outdoors

Having a feel for all things Japanese we have had the opportunity to undertake some interesting and challenging projects as well as making things as simple as children’s picnic benches and garden planters.

The Japanese Residents Association in Hendon asked us to undertake the restoration of their memorial gardens including landscaping as well as providing wooden notice boards.

We have designed and built a large pergola, made and installed fence panels, have refurbished small gardens and installed decking.

Working outdoors is very different to being in the workshop but we still pay attention to detail and are satisfied when our customers are happy.

Simplicity is said to be the hallmark of Japanese furnishings... simplicity disguising a wealth of complex craftsmanship, in effect. Both of these attributes are amply evidenced in the Andon Lamps made for me by Shades of Japan. Cheap they are not: stylishly elegant and true to their own material characters they most definitely are. To say I'm happy with Glenn's craftsmanship would be an understatement.

Thank you Glenn for our wonderful Shoji doors. We were both impressed by your high standards of perfection and the long hours that you spent carefully installing them. The doors have covered a giant area and have transformed our room making it a stylish and calming space to Live in.

Shades of Japan made a pair of authentic Japanese sliding shoji screens to use as a room divider in my London flat, and I am delighted with them. Carefully designed and beautifully crafted, the shoji screens are works of art as well as examples of functional and skilful joinery. I was very fortunate to find Shades of Japan and would recommend them without hesitation.

We were very pleased with the service received from Shades of Japan. The on site installation was not straight-forward, but it was handled admirably. We have achieved the screen we wanted, and enjoy it immensely.

I thought I'd write to you and convey my satisfaction and appreciation for a beautiful Shoji screen you have created. It was my long time dream to have a Shoji screen and you have helped me realise my dream. Every one that has visited my house has commented on its uniqueness and originality. Thank you for your prompt service and I look forward to the second part of the project.
