The Art of Chinoiserie

In celebration of  Chinese New Year 2018 we thought we would take a look at the beautiful collection of chinoiserie designs that will inspire you to implement in within your homes. 

First Of All…. What Is Chinoiserie?

It is the European imitation and interpretation of Chinese and eastern artistry, from literature to architecture to decorative motifs. Entering Europe at the mid to late 17th century, Chinoiserie was celebrated in all areas of the arts. There was a real essence of the Rococo movement with the intricate and extravagant motifs.

We have compiled our favourite looks for interior design.

With beautiful motifs and different tones, we love the idea of using panels to display your Chinoiserie. This way if you wanted to move the designs into a different room, you would be able to do so.
