Modern Heirlooms- Chinoiserie is always a chic choice!

Posted on Apr 9, 2017 in Blog


This month I am exploring Modern Heirlooms, fine furniture being hand crafted today, that future generations will collect tomorrow.  Today's choice is a delicately scaled display cabinet (or bar) with stunning hand painted Chinoiserie.  If you are not familiar with Chinoiserie, it is a French term that refers to a European style design motif influenced by Chinese art.  This style was popular with the English aristocracy from the 16th through the 19th century and remains a tasteful choice for today's home.  The Chippendale style cabinet is constructed of solid mahogany and Imbuya burl veneers and features a pierced brass gallery.  Just think of the treasures you can display on this extraordinary piece of furniture!  Custom order today and save during the Spring Home Sale, your great grandchildren will thank you!
