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 8 fabrics and wallcoverings to add to your arsenal of beloved Chinoiserie prints and patterns from our friends at Manuel Canovas, Cowtan & Tout, Kravet, Travers, Chivasso and Phillip Jeffries. If fabric and wallcovering are not enough to satisfy, we’ve assembled a collection of furniture designs from Niermann Weeks, Baker, Theodore Alexander, Century and more that are sure to delight. Happy scrolling.
