Our Chinoiserie Collection is based on Chinese wallpapers that became popular in royal palaces and grand houses across the Western world principally between 1750 and 1850. As trade between Europe and China flourished in the 18th century, Europeans developed a strong taste for Chinese art and design. Chinese wallpapers were a sophisticated blend of Eastern and Western art and their use in European interiors was an expression of cosmopolitanism and sophistication. Fortunately, many 18th century Chinese wallpapers have survived, thus enabling us to reference them in the faithful recreations of historical Chinoiserie papers. These beautiful recreations, in combination with our own completely unique designs, form our Chinoiserie collection.
