The word chinoiserie comes from the French word chinois, which means “Chinese” or “after the Chinese taste”. While most believe Chinoiserie comes directly from Asia, it is actually a European interpretation of East Asian design featuring panoramic garden landscapes. It didn’t necessarily come from Asia.
Chinoiserie has timeless appeal, which is why it continues its legacy as one of the most coveted patterns. Merging the exotic beauty of Chinoiserie with contemporary Italian luxury, this Oriente Italiano dinner collection from Richard Ginori (designed by Gio Ponti) is no exception.
Pronounced shin-wa-zuui, this pink inspired tablescape brings layers of patterns and various shades of pink to your table. Hand painted onto fine porcelain, this burgundy-against-pink with 24k gold trim Ginori collection is perfect for adding eclectic charm to your tablescapes.
