Hit Parade- Chinoiserie Prints




Have you had enough of me talking about Chinoiserie prints? I hope I don't sound like a broken record, but I truly don't think I could live without having something Chinoiserie in my home (how's that for drama!). Since I've never met a Asian print that I didn't like, it was hard for me to narrow my choices down, but here are a few that have struck my fancy.



"China Rose" chintz by Scalamandre


"Ping" linen by Scalamandre (this is my favorite- I have two armchairs upholstered in this print but in a glazed cotton.)


"Les Fetes d'Orient" by Clarence House


"Kings Dynasty" at Lewis & Sheron


"Masquerade" fabric by Thibaut


"Tea House" wallpaper by Thibaut


"Fishing Village" fabric by Thibaut


"Marco Polo" wallpaper by Thibaut

    My favorite by far is "Petite Palace" by Thibaut. However, it is no longer listed on their web site....does anyone know where I can get some?

  10. Peak - great minds think alike. I decided today to have a little C. in my bedroom. This looks like a cheaper way than wallpapering a whole room. What do you think???
    Should I: Yes/no?

    We're putting the Thibaut Teahouse with the black background above the chairrail in our diningroom and covering the two arm chairs in matching material. Finishing with a Chippendale mirror between the two windows. Love it, love it!!!
