Description - In the Oriental Style: A Sourcebook of Decoration and Design by Michael Freeman
Since the beginning of trade between East and West, the Orient has been a source of beautiful and exotic objects, materials, textures and colours. As the Far East becomes more accessible, the objects and designs found in its traditional dwellings can be applied with equal ease to Western interiors. Celebrating Eastern elegance as a decorative style, this book includes illustrations ranging from the refined craftsmanship of Thai textiles and traditional statuary of Burma to the minimalist perfection of a Japanese apartment. Depicting and describing a wealth of individual pieces, it shows the variety in decoration that even the simplest objects can bring to a Western home or garden.
