Inaugural Edition of Chinoiserie Chic's Fabulous Friday Finds

Welcome to the first edition of Chinoiserie Chic's Fabulous Friday Finds.

First up, my friend Harrison Howard has collaborated with Caspari on a wonderful line of Chinoiserie paper products called Garden Follies. What can I say except WOW! and snatch these up before they are gone. Absolutely gorgeous stuff.

Next up are this new giraffe and elephant from Anthropologie. These would be darling in a bathroom, play room, powder room, nursery, child's room, foyer, bedroom, kitchen, or mud room. Use them as decoration or to hang a scarf or hat just inside the door, necklaces, a kitchen towel, or hand towel. I'm going to use one for Izzy's dog leashes.

A highly collectible Fitz & Floyd vintage ram candleholder for $9.95. Great on a bookshelf.

A very Palm Beach Chic vintage Fitz & Floyd yellow daffodil candlestick for $13.00 - it looks like a little palm tree to me.

Artist Marquin Campbell has these wonderful hand painted gilded oyster shell napkins rings in a set of 4 for $38.00. This is my idea of Coastal Chic. Wouldn't these be beautiful to set your Easter table?

This next find is so great I would do anything to be able to use it myself. Four vintage bamboo chairs with one of my all time favorite and very rare Brunschwig & Fils Chinoiserie fabrics - a blue leopard toile for $245.00! And wait, the fabric has been laminated so they will last forever with no stains. I had my kitchen counter stools' fabric laminated and they look like new years later. If these were on 1st dibs, they would be listed for ten times as much. These are amazing. Use them in a dining room, breakfast room, or covered porch.

Last up is this gorgeous and VERY high end Clarence House toile "Chinoiserie Baroque" fabric. I used the wallpaper in this pattern in my dining room and needless to say I adore it. There are 24 yards available on Buy It Now on eBay at $19.95 a yard and it retails for something like ten times that. Imagine this in your dining room or master bedroom.

I hope everyone has enjoyed this. I'll be collecting more goodies for next Friday's edition.


  1. I love this new Friday feature! My husband however, will not. :)

  2. I'm loving this new series, Beth! Those chairs are really fabulous... and they are here in Florida! Hmmm... I wonder if they could be painted without ruining the amazing upholstery?

  3. Andrea - I'm sure the seats can easily be unscrewed and popped off to paint the chairs.

  4. Amazing Beth I am so glad you are creating this Friday feature!

    A huge congratulations to Harrison Howard, one of my all time favorite artists!! Caspari is certainly a 1st class company.

  6. Because of a missed connection, I spent Saturday in Brighton, England, home of the Royal Pavilion, the absolute end all and be all of Chinoiserie Chic. Unbelievable. Takes your breath away again and again. AND they carry Harrison Howard's wonderful paper products in their marvelous giftshop. Worth the trip if you're in the south of England. Or even the north!

  7. Beth,

    I cannot thank you enough for your posting with the heads up on the Ebay sale of Clarence House Chinoiserie Baroque!!! Just bought it!!! The drapes will cover the side panels for my French doors that have plantation shutters in the guest room.

  8. Lisa,
