Material and Texture. Texture plays an integral part in Asian style furniture. Surfaces can be smooth and shiny, because wood is either polished to perfection, painted, or lacquered. Surface interest is also created by using materials such as bamboo, paper, silver or gold leaf. Upholstery and rugs run the gamut from silk to jute and straw. This round cocktail table is from Hammary, and it combines some very interesting materials and textures that you find in Asian furniture. The deep dish top has a glass inset highlighted by a field of silver leaf. This is a take on an ancient art technique in which the underside of the glass is painted with an intricate pattern. The faux bamboo base has a soft black finish with a subtle red rub through.
Inimitable Oriental Decor. Not too sure if your residence is cut out for an Asian theme? If you have a home that is already clad in cool neutral tones, then all you will need is a subtle decor change to test the waters out before committing to the theme. Small statues of laughing Buddha, decorative fans, Asian scroll paintings, a few jade statues, some oriental parasols, a shoji room divider or two, and throw pillow covers with Asian motifs should get the job done without forcing you to make permanent changes. Whether dramatic or understated, calming or classy, Asian themes offer an amazing way to give your home an impeccable and exclusive appeal. Keep an eye out for some oriental decor pieces next time you visit the thrift shop or the flea market so that you can redecorate on a budget. Get it right and you are guaranteed a tranquil getaway right at home.
