Asian Lighting and Home Decor
About Asian Style
Asian style lighting gets its inspiration from Japanese and Chinese architecture. Spare simplicity and uncluttered design are the hallmarks of Asian style, which brings a feeling of serenity, peace, and calm to a living space.
Sweeping simple horizontal curves set on angled verticals, reminiscent of Buddhist temple architecture, is frequently seen in Asian style lighting. One expression is porcelain table lamps hand-painted (usually blue on white) with figures in landscape scenes, sometimes with animals, other creatures, and stylized florals. Other Oriental motifs include bamboo and chrysanthemums.
