Ikat, Suzani, & Chinoiserie

Alex Papachristidis
 Now that's a mouthful. A growing trend is mixing global influences, like combining ikat or suzani with Chinoiserie. Here are some fantastic examples including DIY ideas for that great vintage Chinese Chippendale or rattan chair you snag on Craigslist.

I love your blog. I just wrote a Chinoiserie decor blog and created a link to your site.

Beth I love the mix going on in these images. It makes the decor so individual and collected.

That last chair is fantastic. I have a suzani bedspread that just makes my bedroom.

Especially good post on global mixing, or as I refer to it at times, ethnic eclectic. As a Houzzer,(Artisanaworks) discovered you there-which led me here. So glad to find you...will have to catch up w/all your posts, as well as your other blog. Have much on my Fleur-de-Lis On-line Flea which fits right in with this mix. I invite you to take a look.
