CHINESE STYLE LAMPS
Chinese interior design has always been characterized by clean, horizontal lines. Today, modern Chinese interiors have added some aspects of Western design. Yet, the lines, whether they are horizontal or vertical will typically maintain a simple elegance.
Porcelain, wood, as well as rice paper have always been a prominent feature in Asian interiors. As for porcelain, the Chinese started larger scale production of the very popular blue and white porcelain back in the 14th century. Today blue & white porcelain table lamps continue to be a steady favorite among homeowners, designers and collectors.
A contemporary Chinese living and dining room with a minimalist design evokes a feeling of openness and continuity. Architectural ceiling, wall, and window features provide much of the visual texture in a design. Furniture and accessories are usually kept to a minimum.
A popular Chinese color scheme is black, white, gold, gray, cream – or some other monochromatic scheme. When color accents are utilized, they are usually very bold, strong colors. Pastels are not generally used.

To contrast the clean lines, accessories such as Chinese table lamps, vases, or other Asian sculptural objects are usually very ornate and intricate.
Much of the Chinese artwork depicts nature – birds, flora & fauna (beautiful cherry blossom trees), perhaps a Geisha girl. Oriental art is mostly influenced by nature and religion. Buddhism and Taoism are very important motifs as they relate to the world.

Besides the importation of blue and white porcelain from China, the Asian influence is also seen in Western architecture and interiors in Arts and Craft, Art Deco, and Art Nouveau Movements.
Also, the famous modern architect, Frank Lloyd Wright was very influenced by Asian design as evidenced by his very often use of the strong horizontal lines and other features.
