Definition: Chinoiserie

Currently undergoing a trendy resurgence, chinoiserie is a design and artistic style that depicts traditional Asian and Chinese motifs. Literally translated from French as "Chinese-esque," this style of decorative art originated in 17th-century Europe and was especially popular in the mid-18th century. You'll often see chinoiserie prints on wallpaper and textiles, while illustrations of Chinese landscapes and figures are common on porcelain and furniture.
