Like any antique object, the use of chinoiserie in furnishing has always fascinated me.
Chinoiserie is a trend that emerged in Europe more than 200 years ago and has not undergone the passage of time. On the contrary, Chinoiserie - chinoiserie in Italian - retains its cultural heritage both for its origins which tell of the first exchanges between the Far East and the West, and in the execution. The materials and craftsmanship involved in making decorative products in this style remain as valuable as they were in its earlier versions.
The materials and the workmanship make the artifacts unique and obviously the subjects depicting animals, plants and Chinese everyday or folk scenes.
However, I decided not to choose only traditional Chinese prints, I wanted to broaden my search a bit to the whole East. I also wanted to give space to less traditional designs and fabrics because, as in art and design, it is also important to know the origins in furnishing but always keep an eye on the future.
