What better time to head east than in the wake of Chinese New Year? However, if jumping on a plane to pick up some Oriental designs for your humble abode seems a bit extravagant, fear not as we’ve scoured the high street and beyond to earn you those bragging rights. Without the jetlag.
1. In The Fold
Simple shapes and clean lines are the mainstay of modern Eastern design. Habitat’s neon orange folding side table has a removable tray top and will add a contemporary vibe to any room in the house.
2. Rainbow Bright
Instantly brighten any room in need of a pick me up with this beautifully intense orange rug. This quintessential Eastern design will work perfectly with rich dark blues and wooden floors.
3. Beauty Queen
A Tretchikoff design, ‘Miss Wong’ will add a dose of artistic elegance to your interior with its plush velour texture and twist of kitsch eroticism. How very 2015.
4. Pillow Talk
Traditional Asian prints have a seductively classic appeal, thrown upon anything from a modular chaise long to an opulent sofa, this cushion shall never look out of place.
5. Time For Tea
Intricate detailing and a heavy cast iron finish make this timeless piece of Eastern design as beautiful as it is functional (it’s dishwasher proof!). All that needs to be added is an array of teas from which to choose.
6. Graphic and Gorgeous
Be it filled with brightly coloured fresh flowers on the coffee table, as a decoration piece on the mantle or in the kitchen stuffed with teabags, Oka’s antique-style Japanese Urn certainly has many a use. What’s more, it looks so genuine perhaps it was picked up on ‘that’ trip to Japan.
