Several people have emailed me or commented that they bought the JCP (I can't speak its name) Chinoiserie bench and are planning on glamming it up. Here are some examples of high or higher end Chinoiserie benches that may be a source of inspiration. As for the base, what about Chinese red, black, black and gold, or even black with accents of gold, red, and turquoise? Fabric could run the gamut from a great Chinoiserie toile, a red or coral pink silk damask, raw silk, leopard, leather, even a tufted cushion. One follower of Chinoiserie Chic may try a faux malachite finish-doesn't that sound fabulous? If anyone would like to send photos of their "after" results, I will do a post on any I receive along with my efforts. Sounds fun! What would you do to glam this up? Do tell!
