The Orient invites itself in your interior!

The first oriental designs appeared in the 3rd century BC. Throughout history, they develop and spread throughout the world. Following the cultural exchanges between the Western and Eastern world, “chinoiseries”, make their appearance in Europe between the XVII and the XVIII centuries. For Western artists it is a real revolution. Chinese art is fascinating, its exotic aspect changes the codes of classical and traditional art. Very inspired by oriental design, artists and craftsmen began to draw inspiration from it. The chinoiseries are democratized under the reign of Louis XV with the artistic movement Rococo. Over the years, Oriental design has continued to impose itself and to sublimate our interiors
