Asian Style Basics, Different elements of Asian style have influenced Western décor for centuries. Today we are so used to these Asian influences that we do not even realize where they came from. The ball and claw foot, for instance, was originally inspired by a Chinese motif. Asian inspired furniture draws on Japanese, Chinese, Korean and Vietnamese traditions among others. The Asian style, which encompasses the Far East, is not confined to any one country or culture and spans centuries. Far from having a single homogenous look, Asian furniture can be highly ornamented, with carved surfaces and bold color, or have very simple lines, free of any ornamentation with soothing neutral tones. When creating your own Asian-inspired interior, you can pick and choose from different elements. Maybe what stands out as the single most defining feature is a sense of balance and a lack of clutter creating balanced, uncluttered, and harmonious interiors. The red and black Chinese inspired chest is from Hooker.
Accessories. Because the transitional style is never overly dramatic, the quiet and subdued furnishings provide a chance to show off collections and accessories. Eclectic and exotic accessories have a place here, as do more quiet and romantic or vintage pieces. The amount of flexibility is quite possibly one of the best features of this style. To accessorize in a transitional style you may: Choose textured rugs in neutral colors. Stay away from very complex patterns, but geometrical patterns can work. Sunburst mirrors or mirrors with simple frames can be used for wall decor. Mirrored screens or Asian inspired room dividers are often used. An object with a patina of age and nostalgia can be used. Take a look at the accessories in the Esquire Home Collection for instance. Other accessories may include simple candlesticks in silver or bud vases. They are never large in scale or overly dramatic. How to Find Transitional Style Furniture Furniture and other accessories in a transitional style are quite possibly the easiest to find. Stanley, Pottery Barn, and Crate and Barrel are among good sources for this style, as is Century Furniture at a higher price point.
