Design Shoji was founded in 1982

by the husband-and-wife team of Brian Consterdine and Wren Okasaki. Working together to find solutions to each client’s unique needs keeps us always thinking,
“What if…?” As a general contractor, Brian’s focus has always been on building shoji doors that last. Premium materials, special construction techniques, and heavy-duty hidden hardware are all use to create a shoji installation that’s dependable and easy to use.

However, our greatest delight is in hearing from clients again over the years..
“My new doors are wonderful and a perfect match with the first order we placed back in 1988! In fact, you can’t tell the difference between the old shoji and the new ones — they still look brand new! Thank you again.” – Suzanne, ALASKA 1999
“Design Shoji did a wonderful installation for us … in 1987! 2 panels have broken their overhead hardware… I would like to buy replacement hardware. We have enjoyed your beautiful work for many years.” – Bill and Jeanne, CALIFORNIA 2001
“We have had our shoji since 1997. They are just wonderful! We have them throughout the house in the bedrooms, hallway, family room and kitchen. They are used everyday but still look brand new. They don’t show any weakness; … everyone compliments us on the doors. You just don’t get this kind of craftsmanship; it’s very rare…”
