What is Chinoiserie? 

Its a style in art reflecting Chinese influence: elaborately decorated and intricately patterned. This particular style originated from Europe where the artisans imitated the colorful and complex design elements of China into pottery, fabric and furniture. While Europe quickly jumped at the playful and whimsical designs that came out of this influence and adopted it into their design aesthetics, the rest of the world wasn’t far behind. Our country Pakistan is equally fascinated with Oriental patterns, landscapes and its rich colors.
