What’s that you say? You want more?

Chinoiserie, a French term, signifying “Chinese-esque” refers to a recurring theme in European artistic styles since the seventeenth century, which reflect Chinese artistic influences.It is characterized by the use of fanciful imagery of an imaginary China, by asymmetry in format and whimsical contrasts of scale, and by the attempts to imitate Chinese porcelain and the use of lacquerlike materials and decoration.

Various European monarchs, such as Louis XV of France, gave special favor to Chinoiserie, as it blended well with the rococo style.

The Spring Issue92 pays homage to an Eastern aesthestic; we looked at various disciplines, crafts, people and homes where West meets East.

We  show you Jade Jagger’s home in India, show you how to create zen spa-like bathrooms at home, and play with the classic Willow pattern in green, gold and white, and much more.
