Saturday Chinoiserie Picks


New from Gumps, these darling Chinoiserie magnets based on vintage Chinoiserie textiles and gorgeous Chinoiserie table linens, quite like de Gournay for the table, all quite well priced and fabulous to boot!

love the linens. one of my dearest friends grew up in hong kong. when i got married, she gave me a set of dishes her family had from that time, and they would match the magnets perfectly. mine have an orange koi motif, and the tiny teacups have an orange chinoiserie motif. loves them!

Ahh! I love those table linens! And they really do look like the de Gournay wallpaper. Great find!

How lucky you are Kitty! Those magnets ARE pretty cool. I like small, unexpected details.

These are fantastic- particularly the magnets. I'm unfamiliar with Gump's, but on my way to visit!

I adore Gumps (and your blogs!) and I too thought these were plates. And then paperweights. And then I read the description - magnets works too! Fantastic colors. I have to admit I wouldn't have guessed all of those patterns were Chinoiserie. Love them.
