Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 962593457X, Hardcover)

Chinese interior design is a kaleidoscope of competing influences: scholarly gardens versus opium dens, imperial palaces battling concrete-and-steel high rises, rural simplicity fighting urban chaos, cultural-revolutionary cotton up against rich imperial silks, the list goes on and on. China Style looks at interiors that draw from this vivid and powerful tradition. With photographer Michael Freeman and author Sharon Leece, visit formal, more traditional metropolitan apartments featuring priceless antique furniture, see examples of Shanghai Art Deco and the unique Peranakan shop house, as well as modern manifestations of China Style—clubs sumptuously furnished with glittering fabrics and Chinese design motifs, minimalistic glass houses, restaurants in with a cultural-revolution flair, the China doll interior, and many more. Photographed in locations as diverse as Shanghai and Anhui in China, New York and Minneapolis in the USA, in Hong Kong, Singapore and other Southeast Asian destinations, China Style includes many homes, hotels, restaurants and shops that have never been photographed before, and shows how Chinese tradition is constantly being reinterpreted to produce a fresh and dynamic style of contemporary design.

Contents: Search for Simplicity; Shanghai Style; Modern Grandeur; Ming Elegance; Scholarly Living; Rediscovering Roots; Provincial Style; Decorative Living
