Modern Oriental | A New Approach to Chinese Design

I loving the subtle hints of oriental elements in this house by Burnham Design.

The Buddha lamps and the rug pattern... such a sophisticated and modern way to bring in Chinese elements.

The sofa fabric and rug pattern remind me of traditional Chinese window fretwork.

I love this amazing wall paneling and the sleek shape of the lamps.

 Another beautiful Asian-inspired apartment by Francesca Herrera.

Speaking of Asian design, when I hear Chinese garden / architecture, this is what I have in my very typical Asian mind:

But who knew it can look like this:

The Suzhou Museum by the ingenious architect, I. M. Pei
What a fresh approach on Chinese architecture!
