Shop Chinoiseries in Springfield
Asian-influenced chinoiserie continues to be a timeless favorite.
by heather kane kohler
With a new wave of design-savvy traditionalist inspired influencers, recently dubbed “grandmillennials,” on the rise, you’re likely to see a variety of new and old chinoiserie elements popping up in local showrooms and designers portfolios. The term chinoiserie comes from the French word chinois, or “Chinese,” so the word is actually a European interpretation of Asian culture and decorative arts. From colorful foo dogs to glossy lacquered furnishings, chinoiserie encompasses far more than the blue-and-white porcelain we all know so well. If you’re ready to jump on the grandmillennial train, look for motifs of pagodas, dragons and nature scenes and for details like faux bamboo. Now's the perfect time to dust off your pieces that you’ve stored away or start collecting some new timeless chinoiserie.
