Chinoiserie Chic

Chinoiserie started in the mid-to-late 17th century and became popular in Europe as part of the French Rococo movement. Chinoiserie is Western Europe's representation of Chinese and East Asian cultures, as Europeans at that time, interpreted them. 

This style of design is characterized by its Romanticism and theatrical perceptions of life in the Far East. Chinoiserie is often identified by extravagant decor, Chinese motifs and Chinese lifestyle.
