Modern Chinoiserie

If elegant, European decor is more your style, add Asian flair with chinoiserie furniture, textiles and accessories. Chinoiserie (a French term meaning "Chinese-esque") originated in 17th- and 18th-century Europe as a representation of fanciful Chinese influences through intricate and imaginary designs. With a touch of whimsy, the drawings and designs are most often found on cabinets, porcelain objects and embroideries. HGTV fan LaDolfina mixed contemporary decor with chinoiserie influences for an elegant approach to Asian design. The most notable piece of chinoiserie decor is the fireplace and mantel, purchased in the Marais District in Paris.
