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.
