The Top Ten Chinoiserie Pieces #4


Today we look at piece number 4 from Elle Decor's Top Ten Chinoiserie Pieces. This is the Chandler Chest by Diane Granda for Henredon priced at $5,685 to use as a dining room buffet or televison stand. I am underwhelmed at that price. Below are some similar great Chinese cabinets starting at $339. Below that is a brilliant Ikea Rast Hack by the equally brilliant Naomi Stein of Design Manifest. She created this amazing Asian lacquer double campaign chest that she originally used as a console and now for her television for $150!!!!!!!!! See all the details here.
