Chinoiserie is a decorative art that uses elements of Chinese design and ornamentation, often with a Japanese influence. The term was first used in about 1835, although the style existed for centuries before it was named. Chinoiserie style became popular in Europe during the 17th century following the arrival of European Jesuit missionaries who were sent to China to convert its population to Christianity. These missionaries returned home with gifts from their hosts, including porcelain objects such as tea sets, dishes and vases decorated with motifs such as peonies or bamboo in blue and white color that has become one of the most popular color combinations in history. As we move forward into an era of maximalist design, some classic styles like chinoiserie are re-entering the spotlight, especially in decorative arts and fashion 2023.
