Chinese Style Furniture
To start, Chinese style tends to be more graphic. Chinese art depicts graphic scenes of samurais and dragons and makes use of bold colors such as reds and golds. Chinese furniture typically is made of darker woods such as mahogany and uses dark paints and stains.
There are several ways in which you can infuse Chinese design style into your current space:
Use rich colors such as reds, golds, greens and black.
Paint an accent wall red.
Use simple lighting and/or floral arrangements around one or two pieces of high quality furniture, such as an ornately designed antique chest or hand carved chair.
Incorporate decorated paper lanterns into your lighting theme.
Purchase dark stained or black furniture with red accents.
Place stalks of bamboo in Chinese urn.
