Classic Chinoiserie

J. Joern Cunningham

A wonderful work/study area has been created in the corner of this room.

The wallpaper is the classic Brunschwig & Fils Bird and Thistle. Although not a chinoiserie wallpaper, it is a very popular classic paper that works beautifully with chinoiserie, like the black Chinese Chippendale chair and blue and white Chinese porcelain on the mantel.

This is a favorite lamp of mine by Arteriors - the Tassel Table Lamp in Ivory.

These are some other options I have found to create this look.

Here is a great choice in a black Chinese Chippendale chair - the Dayna at Ballard Designs. It's a very well made chair and it's even on sale.

I love this black iron desk also on sale at Ballard Designs.

This faux fiddle leaf fig is highly recommended and was the top pick by Apartment Therapy.

This seagrass basket would work very well for it.

Ballard Designs has some stunning Bunny Williams desk accessories on Clearance - i.e. great deals.

Bunny Williams Turquoise Leather Petite Charging Station

Bunny Williams Turquoise Leather Large Charging Station

I am ordering one of these charging stations for myself. Every morning I charge my Apple Watch, my iPhone, my iPad, and my MacBook Air so I could use it!


  1. The wallpaper is lovely. I wish Bunny's desk accessories came in other colors. The light blue is very pretty, but isn't part of my color scheme.
