Chinoiserie interior design. Chinoiserie, French for "Chinese-esque") is a recurring theme in European artistic styles since the seventeenth century, which reflect Chinese artistic influences. In a broader scope refers to a mixture of Eastern and Western stylistic elements for both the decoration and shape.

The Chinoiserie design style regularly featured furnishings of 'Chinese red', such as the lamp and table seen in this image. Wall murals depicting Asian-influenced designs and bird life were also common throughout the era.
