From the Inside Flap
Chinese motifs in home décor and design have influenced western tastes for decades. This remarkable book now turns the tables by examining contemporary Chinese homes and their traditional (and modern) influences. Featuring hundreds of color photographs, this book examines present-day Chinese homes and considers all aspects of their design, layout, form, function, and above all, the use of space. The result is a profound meeting of Eastern and Western style and sensibility which dramatically alters the perception of the “traditional” Chinese home. With special attention towards aesthetic taste, simplicity, and elegance, this is an ideal book for anyone interested in contemporary Chinese home design.
