Chinoiserie Chic from Thibaut

Chinoiserie is a French term meaning “a style of decoration reflecting Chinese motifs.” According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, the first known usage of the word was in 1883, but interest in Chinese objects developed in the 17th and 18th centuries due to trade expansion to the East. The Western world began appropriating Asian motifs in fanciful ways using blue and white pottery, gilding and lacquered surfaces. Chinoiserie was a hit at the High Point Market in North Carolina two months ago, and Thibaut’s Enchantment Collection is a new interpretation of oriental style. “With an eastern influence, this fresh collection of coordinating wallpaper, embroidery, print and woven fabrics pays homage to traditional European artistic styles. Modern design elements mimic fashionable chinoiserie compositions like scenics, fretwork and delicate florals.”
