Chinoiserie Chic Christmas - Jasper Conran's Chinoiserie Christmas Tree
For Christmas of 2006, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London commissioned British fashion and homeware designer Jasper Conran to design their Christmas tree. He decorated the tree with 1000 Wedgwood crystal drops and emerald and aquamarine lights. Clear screens etched with Chinoiserie motifs surround the 20 foot tree, inspired by the Chinoiserie designs he used in his "Jasper Conran at Wedgwood" china pattern. Have you ever seen a more beautiful tree?
