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.
The Perfect Backdrop. Asian designs and themes are largely inspired by the colors of nature, and often decorations mimic scenic landscapes and reinterpret natural colors to suit the interior. Hence, it is best to keep the backdrop as neutral as possible. That does not mean white is your only option. Gentle cream, understated light blues and even an elegant grey work just fine. Remember that you are going for a soothing backdrop that offers a relaxed and laid-back ambiance. A Hint of Vivacious Color. One popular misconception is that Asian styles are bereft of any vivid and rich hues, while in reality the truth is exactly the opposite! An Asian-themed interior is truly complete only with vibrant accent hues that stand out when placed in a calm, neutral setting.
Room furniture. Room furniture is low. Wicker or handmade of very durable wood, furniture pieces look unique and very decorative. Beds and sofas are decorated with lots of cushions in various shapes and styles. Low round stools, ottomans, poufs and simple seats with cushions are popular room furniture items that add flexibility to modern interior design.
