Funky Bright Asian Influences in Design

I’ve noticed a new trend lately that I first noticed in a Horchow catalog. It is their “Chinoiserie Dynasty” Chair. I think this chair is so adorable! I love the Asian print. It is young, bright, fun, and definitely not your grandmother’s Asian chair. The shape is casual as is the 100% cotton fabric. I could create a whole room around this chair.

After a lot of research, I found this adorable wedding tablescape.  The wedding designer Canvas and Canopy did an excellent job of keeping this an upbeat, fun, bright and beautiful wedding.

For a simple and easy way to add this fun Asian trend into your life is with this great wrapping paper from World Market.  For just $2.99 you get a 21″X30″ sheet.  I’m thinking I could use it to cover coffee table books, a lamp shade, or any number of craft projects.

For another small accessory, this book box from Pier 1 fits the bill.  It’s bright, small, and gives that whimsical Asian feel to any space.

Susan Massey designed this fabulous bold Zen kitchen that was featured in Southern Accents.  The red lacquered cabinets look amazing, especially with the gold chandelier hanging in the center of the space.  This is definitely a commitment that most wouldn’t make, but I think it is bright and perfect for that particular space.
