About the book:

The creators of this Asian-design sourcebook believe that "there is no single, definitive 'Oriental' style, but rather a wealth of diverse treatments and approaches ... which range from authentic traditional interiors to the exuberant, eclectic blending of arts and artifacts ... in re-creations of Oriental styles in the West." The Oriental Style is artful without being opaque, classy without lapsing into elitism. While beautiful in their simplicity, the examples in the "Traditional Living" section may be too austere for the average home decorator. However, later chapters showcase a rich mélange of styles--a Tibetan rug in an English country den, or a wooden Buddha in a stairway alcove--that any Asian-design enthusiast will appreciate. Particularly useful are the chapters on furnishings and decorative details, which display and describe dozens of classic and modern items, from futons and folding screens to wooden chests and the smaller accents that make your home truly unique. --Jhana Bach
