Buffalo Checks and Chinoiserie

Manuel Canovas
 I have always loved combining stripes and Chinoiserie, but lately the notion of buffalo checks and Chinoiserie has been on my mind. It is fresh, graphic, modern, yet traditional. Interior designers love it too, as you can see.

I've even created a Buffalo Checks and Chinoiserie board on Pinterest you can follow.
