Chinese Style

Interiors, Furniture, Details

Photographs by: Liu Shenghui
At its core, Chinese style is a marriage of the traditional philosophies of Buddhism, Taoism and Confucianism. Its aesthetic is also influenced by the long history of Chinese art, the regional characteristics of northern and southern houses, and the fusion trend which began in the 1930s when western style furniture was incorporated into the homes of the Chinese elite.

With detailed descriptions of furnishings, materials, component pieces and color, Chinese Style is a must for those who are looking for some quick and simple ways to give their own personal living space a touch of Chinese flair.
