The Inspiration: This design is based on Chinoiserie, the decorative style of the 1920s and 1930s, an era devoted to interpreting and adopting Oriental design in fashion and the decorative arts. A very popular home furnishing, especially for a romantic boudoir was the coromandel folding screen of black lacquer incised with flowers and birds.
