Like many, I’ve always had a fascination for all things Oriental. The Far East has a lot of history, and the architecture, teachings, clothing and style seem to contain an elegance and beauty to them.
For me, owning a piece of quality handmade furniture from the orient is essential to finish off any homes interior. Selected items can quite easily compliment your style and finish in any room in your home and really finish off a space with a piece that your friends and family will compliment you on.
Furniture from China and many other countries in that region stands out. The intricate pictures and stories depicted on hand painted cabinets, end tables and heirloom pieces create a presence and aura that is timeless.
There are of course, many ways to bring the orient home with you. You can visit the orient on your travels and get the pieces you like shipped home. This can be expensive, but has its benefits as often if you find the right supplier you can get unique hand-crafted pieces. Alternatively, you can source a store or location closer to home or online that specialises in oriental furniture and picks pieces that would compliment any home.
When choosing about pieces for your home, think about centre-pieces that are the cornerstone or focal point of your living or dining area. Alternatively, room dividers for smaller spaces to create clear areas in your home. Bedroom areas can be transformed with the right piece or pieces. Alternatively, rooms can be transformed into tranquil places depicting the serenity and peace associated with oriental teachings. So many options, it can be a pleasure just perusing the wonderful array of furniture available.
