Vintage Chinoiserie Inspiration

Architectural Digest


This photo was on the cover of Architectural Digest in November/December 1975. Is it Tony Duquette? I love the parasols, the elephant, the Chinese garden stool, and the rattan chairs. It has quite a modern vibe.

The parasols bring to mind this Charlotte Moss Kips Bay 1995 room with its Chinoiserie parasol bed.
