Whether they were built in or freestanding, room dividers were a popular feature in the homes of the ’50s and ’60s. They helped separate spaces without the dark and style-less intervention of a wall, and they offered decor and privacy, oftentimes between the living room and its adjacent rooms. Finding them in tact is a rarity worth of celebration, but for those who want to take their fortune into their own hands, we’ve gathered some of our favorite cabinets and room dividers, vintage and new, that will surely be a worthy addition to your ranch.
