Throughout my design career, I have been drawn to the “ Chinese Chippendale” style.  I believe this love affair started while I was in design school.  I distinctly remember that in one of our design labs we had a set of lovely Chinese Chippendale chairs.  I am reminded of those chairs by this lovely room.

CLASSIC, TIMELESS, AND ELEGANT!  That well sums up this style for me.  I love in it architectural details, like this fretwork I did in a recent showhouse room…

And in a range of color and finish in all these chairs!

I was delighted to see this vignette at my recent speaking engagement in Orlando that was inspired by my Study in Pink chapter of The Collected Tabletop!

Yes, a classic design style that fits almost anywhere and never looks dated!

Enjoy!
