Orient Express

Succeeding in creating the perfect environment for the home, one where peaceful Zen meets relevance in terms of trend, is no easy feat. But Asian influences in interior design are making the process that much easier as these pieces are now more readily available. Try adding a traditional bed, a giant Lobmeyr crystal chandelier resembling a Chinese pavilion and a Kenzo Maison dining table, punctuated by extras like a great Armani Casa seat and ottoman or a modern Oriental cabinet from Jalan Jalan and you’ll start to feel at home in your space.
