|Oscar de la Renta's Dining Room - circa 1969|
Last Monday, my Chinoiserie Gone Wrong post featured this photo below and everyone agreed this lamp looked ridiculous on the Chinese garden stool.

I have always loved seeing pictures of Oscar de la Renta's homes and when I found this I just had to share. The dining room is wonderful, but he has a pair of Chinese lamps on garden stools. LOL! He gets a pass, the room is gorgeous, but I thought it would be fun to share. Here is another shot of it - note the animal print Chinoiserie on the ceiling, table, and chairs. The lampshades are different colors in the two photos as well. I prefer the white, but doesn't it look like they still have the cellophane wrap on them?
The fabric on the ceiling, chairs, and table is Brunschwig & Fils Chinese Leopard Toile.
Here's my Margot on her miniature chaise that was originally in my daughter Kate's nursery. It is upholstered in a vintage Brunschwig & Fils fabric from their Winterthur Collection circa 1974 "English Leopard" - it reminds me a bit of this room's style.

A Happy and safe Easter to all. Stay tuned for a really unbelievable Chinoiserie Gone Wrong tomorrow.
