Featuring over 300 beautiful photographs and extensive commentary, China Style blends the chic designs of modern China with the traditional 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 insiders' 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 featured 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.
