Oriental Furnishings – Making the Look Work

Oriental Furniture- Getting the look right with Chinese inspired furnishings

Oriental furniture is a trend that only seems to get bigger and more popular as every year goes by.  Our hectic and busy lifestyles often leave us needing some Feng Shui in the home and a Zen interior will promote feelings of peace and calm – and we all need that!   When you open your door, an Asian inspired interior will have you breathing slower and looking for a corner to curl up in and unwind.

Oriental furnishings can transform any living space, giving it an exotic and sophisticated style. To make this look work you need to find oriental furniture pieces that have the hallmarks of the Orient. These include dark woods (usually brown and black), striking colours, carvings and metal features.  Oriental furniture should look delicate while still being well built and sturdy.

So, your walls won’t need repainting and instead you can make this Oriental look feel complete by introducing accessories in colours such as red, burnt orange and gold.   A touch of gold will introduce opulence, glamour and warmth to any Oriental interior.  Whereas a few scatters of red works well in the bedroom, reminding you it’s a room for passion as well as resting.
