About chinoiserie Designs
See the classic motifs of chinoiserie through a modern lens with Spoonflower's extensive library of novel prints on demand. From romantic birds and blooms to fantastical dragons and pagodas, our chinoiserie wallpaper and fabric by the yard tell a colorful story.Chinoiserie first emerged as a trend in the 17th century, a time when European traders returned with goods and anecdotes from East Asia. While traveling the world was an impossibility for the general population, people could discover new places on the map through decorative objects and art.In Europe, the fascination with China and blue and white Chinese porcelain surged after trendsetting King Louis XIV of France built the Trianon de Porcelaine at the Palace of Versailles. Surrounded by extravagant formal gardens of perfumed flowers, this tiled pavilion sparked massive demand for East Asian goods.European manufacturers responded by producing textiles, furniture, and art emulating Chinese motifs and techniques. It's interesting to note that chinoiserie as a trend was entirely a European invention, an imitative style that revealed both curiosity and celebration of novel ideas from a then-distant culture. For many, it was a welcome departure from the rules of classicism and baroque design.Today, the spirit and beauty of chinoiserie lives on through Spoonflower's community of independent artists and makers who embrace nostalgic designs with a contemporary twist. If you're looking to warm up your interior with a more personal or maximalist style, our chinoiserie wallpaper and chinoiserie fabric by the yard revives this traditional, centuries-old trend with a fresh, new aesthetic.
