The Chinoiserie Dining Room

Liz Caan

This is an intriguing dining room by Liz Caan featuring a favorite chinoiserie fabric of mine - Quadrille's Paradise Background in Black on Tint. A farmhouse dining table paired with cane wingback dining chairs is lit by a white and brass ring chandelier. I like the unexpected choice of the pink velvet on the chairs.

I believe the framed burlap sack was for transporting coffee beans from Guatemala. Here is a similar one on eBay. There are many of these vintage sacks for sale.

Framing unique pieces like this is a great way to bring personality into your home. Framebridge is excellent for framing virtually anything. They do a really good job with textiles, floating the piece and sewing it to the mat.

The curtain fabric is a classic chinoiserie choice - Quadrille's Paradise Background, available in many colorways.

These caned dining chairs are very similar.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Labor Day weekend.

  2. Ah!! We have a vintage French mail sack that has been collecting dust waiting for the right use. Thanks for sharing the inspiration!
