2. Chinoiserie is whimsical.

3. Chinoiserie works with lots of design styles.

4. Chinoiserie is bold.
There is such strength in the form of this Chinoiserie cabinet, yet it still feels refined.
And the strong impact of a trellis design is undeniable.
5. Chinoiserie is timeless. We have been charmed by Chinoiserie for centuries and will continue to be for centuries to come.
