9780794605537: China Style

Featuring over 300 beautiful photographs and extensive commentary, China Style blends the chic designs of modern China with the sensibilities of traditional Chinese art.

Chinese interior design is a kaleidoscope of competing influences: scholarly gardens versus opium dens, imperial palaces battling concrete and steel high-rises, rural simplicity fighting urban chaos,.China Style gives an insider's look at the interiors that draw from this vivid and powerful tradition, a tradition that is constantly being reinterpreted to produce a fresh and dynamic style of contemporary design.

A gorgeous idea book, China Style illustrates a practical and achievable way to incorporate traditional and contemporary Chinese interior design ideas into your own home decor.

The exquisite houses featured in this book demonstrate that Chinese design has truly gone global. Author Sharon Leece explores how contemporary interiors anywhere in the world today—whether in London, Paris, Shanghai, Beijing, New York, Los Angeles, Hong Kong, Singapore or Bangkok—can be given a dramatic flair with Chinese furniture and design.

Chapters include:

  • China Style Goes Global
  • Ming and Qing Elegance Redefined
  • Chinoiserie Old and New
  • The New Shanghai Style
  • China Modern
  • Decorating China Style
The interiors range from formal metropolitan apartments featuring priceless Ming antiques, to trendy Shanghai art deco homes from the 1930s and Maoist-inspired chic from the 1950s and 60s, to the unique overseas Chinese shophouses of Southeast Asia and the cutting-edge Chinese art minimalism of contemporary Beijing and Hong Kong.

About the Author:

Sharon Leece is a writer and editor based in Hong Kong and China. Formerly Editor-in-Chief of ELLE Decoration Hong Kong, she helped launch ELLE Decoration China and continues to contribute to both magazines. She is the author of China Modern and China Living.

Michael Freeman has photographed extensively in Asia, both for magazines such as Smithsonian, GEO and Conde Nast Traveler, and for numerous books, including Japan Modern and China Home.

From Booklist:

The next best thing to an 18-hour flight to the Far East could be viewing the 36 different spaces here that have China written all over them. Text becomes superfluous to the brilliantly colored photographs (from Michael Freeman) that show personal and commercial interiors in, for the most part, New York, London, California, Shanghai, Hong Kong, and Singapore. In fact, this resembles "lifestyles of the rich and famous," because many of the antiques and accessories pictured, from Tibetan carpets to Ming furniture, are now astronomically priced. Nonetheless, the more than five periods--Ming and Qlng, Chinoiserie Old and New, the new Shanghai style, and China Modern--though not radically distinctive, do showcase a new way to look at design, with balance, order, and harmony valued above all else. And in conclusion, journalist Leece tries to give tips, through product photographs, about achieving a China-style look. Barbara Jacobs
