Chinoiserie

Chinoiserie is a term derived from the French word, ‘chinois’, meaning ‘in the Chinese taste’. During the 17th and 18th centuries, under flourishing trade routes between Asia and Europe, it became very fashionable for wealthy Europeans to decorate their homes with Chinoiserie. It has been one of the most enduring home decorating styles and remains hugely popular today.
