Saturday Inspiration

Michelle Nussbaumer
 I have really fallen in love with green velvet sofas with inset banding. I think this is a perfect choice for the Chinoiserie living room as it works beautifully with blue and white Chinese porcelain, celadon, blanc de Chine, black and gold lacquered furniture, and Chinoiserie fabrics and wallpaper. In the Michelle Nussbaumer room above, for example, it is lovely with the Chinoiserie screen, Chinese garden stool, calligraphy brushes, celadon ginger jars and pot, and Chinese horse. I really like it combined with a leopard pillow as Palmer Weiss has done here and the ikat bolster in the Ruthie Sommers room.

  2. I love this deep green sofa with inset banding. It’s a great alternative to the traditional Blue & White Chinoiserie theme.
