Topical Trends: Chinoiserie Walls

What does it mean, Precious!? Chinoiserie is a french term from the 17 century, meaning “Chinese-esque”referring to Chinese design influences. As the trade market developed and progressed in East Asia, Europeans conjured imaginative interpretations of Chinese life. These fanciful stories and embellished designs manifested into interior design through art, ceramics, furniture, prints and textiles.

Whimsical Chinese life was translated through gilding and lacquering techniques, detailed paintings, blue and white ceramics to imitate Chinese porcelain, antiques and carvings. And now, Chinoiserie style is seeing a powerful resurgence. Just lately, these artistic Asian motifs are dancing over the walls in paintings by hand, prints, panels and wallpaper!
