Different elements of Oriental style have influence western interiors for centuries, drawing on influences from Japan, China and Vietnam and spanning different centuries. Far from having a single look, Asian inspired interior design can be highly ornamental with carved surfaces and bold colour, or have very simple lines, free from any ornamentation with soothing natural tones.
At The Wooden Furniture Store, our Nine Schools collection can add a sense of balance, harmony and serenity while keeping a fresh, contemporary feel to any room.
An Oriental style interior is only truly complete with vibrant hues that stand out when placed in a calm, neutral setting. The lovely pinks of cherry blossom, rich purple or luxurious turquoise are all an integral part of the style. The collection includes a number of eye catching blue pieces that have a symmetrical design and a gloss lacquer finish which is beautifully enhanced with gold and red butterflies which symbolise young love and sociability in Chinese culture.
Texture plays an integral part in Oriental style furniture. Surfaces should be smooth and shiny, because wood is either polished to perfection, painted, or lacquered. The collection features bold lacquer designs in a choice of four colour ways, expertly built using traditional Chinese techniques and including pieces for the living room, dining room and hallway. The antiqued metal work fastenings add the finishing touch to each piece.
Whether dramatic or understated, calming or classy, Oriental inspired interior design and the Nine Schools range resonates beauty and give a modern home a streamlined feel.
