To the world at large, Oriental style has increasingly becomes less remote, mysterious and inaccessible; instead, it represents a culturally significant approach to decoration that can easily be adapted to modern lifestyles. It is a decorative style that not only projects a traditional Chinese aesthetic, but also invokes the profound historical and cultural background of one of the worlds oldest civilizations. Oriental style typically calls to mind complex patterns, colours, motifs and antiques rich in symbolism. What few realize however, is how traditional Chinese furniture can be suited perfectly to contemporary interiors. For example, the elegant of the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), with its clean lines and simple forms, matches modern furniture design well. Meanwhile, the traditional use of bamboo can be appropriated to create a natural, yet thoroughly contemporary feel. Shanghai Decor is a unique decorative style resulting from the marriage of Chinese elements & Western design, and it inself plays an essential part in evoking the nostalgia of old Shanghai. This volume is an authentic, insightful, and visually breathtaking survey of architecture, furniture and decorative accessories in some of the most sophisticated urban properties in China.
