SPOTLIGHT: Chinoiserie

Popularized in 18th century Europe, Chinoiserie has amassed a rather ardent following of late, with entire Instagram accounts dedicated to this fantastical view of Chinese art and culture. Lovers of the look share a fondness for pagodas, trellis and exotic florals. And the mere mention of “blue and white” will most certainly elicit a smile, a social media “like,” even a heart emoji (blue of course).

If we’re speaking your style, a timeless one to be sure, read on. We’ve gathered 10 fabrics and wallcoverings to add to your arsenal of beloved Chinoiserie prints and patterns from our friends at Manuel Canovas, Cowtan & Tout, Clarke & Clarke, Travers, Bailey & Griffin and Phillip Jeffries. If fabric and wallcovering are not enough to satisfy, we’ve assembled a collection of furniture designs from Niermann Weeks, Hickory White, Kindel, Century and more that are sure to delight. Happy scrolling.
