Modern Chinoiserie


Here is a wild and modern take on a Royal Delft vase by the Swedish company Design Front. I first saw this on the wonderful blog Scandinavian Chic. This Blow Away Vase was recently acquired by the Victoria and Albert Museum in London to become part of its permanent collection. Click here to read more about it and to watch a video on how it was created.
