Pieces of Chinoiserie


I received a lovely email yesterday from the co-owner of Vellum, a to the trade decorative accessories company, about discovering and following Chinoiserie Chic. She included a picture of these stunning Chinoiserie pieces above that Vellum sells through such stores as Pieces in Atlanta. I recalled that Pieces was featured in Domino, as well as Elle Decor, Lucky, and In Style, but had not realized that they have a wonderful website and ship nationwide. Their things are fabulous, sophisticated yet modern, and their collection of Chinoiserie, of which this is but a small sampling, is extensive. They have beautiful vintage items that have been brought back to life, and well edited new items. For someone looking for pieces that fall in between very expensive antiques and mass produced items, this is your place. Your home will thank you.

Thanks for the tip. I admire them all. I am hooked on faux bamboo pieces and acquired a buffet & chairs from ebay. With some lacquer & hard work, they are my favorite finds. Whether in or out, they will always be tops with me. Love your blog (:

Dumbwit Tellher-Oh I bet they are so fabulous! Did you do them in white lacquer? This is so classic, but I am also enjoying the idea of faux bamboo in red, orange, lime green, orange, black, fuschia-quite chic in the right room!
