Creating a dining room with Chinoiserie flair does not require new furniture, just some accessorizing. The top five photos of my dining room show how I added Chinoiserie touches to an otherwise traditional space with a pair of black and gold Chinoiserie sconces, pagoda candle holders, and blue and white Chinese porcelain. Also shown is my collection of vintage beaded fruit that, though not Chinoiserie, does add some Tony Duquette style glamor. Click on the photos to enlarge. The stunning dining rooms below show how a few well chosen pieces-whether ginger jars, fu dogs, Chinese screens, wallpaper, a pagoda chandelier, or a pair of Chinese Chippendale chairs can transform your dining room.
