Faux Bamboo, Shagreen, Lacquer and Chinoiserie Furniture and Accessories

Chinoiserie is a French term that refers to Chinese lacquered designs. During the seventeenth century a love of all things Oriental swept over Europe. Lacquer furniture was the height of sophisticated design. Lacquer furniture from China was introduced as early as 1613 in England, favored by Louis XIV and made even more popular in France by Madame de Pompadour during the reign of Louis XV. Highly decorated pieces included motifs such as exotic birds and flowers, pagodas and monkeys. Go to: Chinoiserie, Faux Bamboo Furniture, Lacquer Furniture, Shagreen Furniture

Chinoiserie and Japanais

Chinoiserie adds a highly decorative finish to any piece that makes it stand out in a room. A single piece can make a dramatic difference. Pieces imported directly from the Orient were extremely limited. To suit European tastes, European craftsmen refashioned imports to decorate western goods, or sent European furniture to the Far East to be decorated. Soon they were working to replicate these pieces. True lacquer comes from the sap of a tree not found in the West, so they had to invent finishes that would mimic this look. In England this became known as "Japan work" or "japanning." Designs most often have a Chinese look, but can also be Japanese or Indian. In some cases, an antique combines real Chinese lacquer and English japanning. China is considered to be the birthplace of lacquer work, but Japan was the premier producer typically featuring gold lacquer on a black lacquer ground.

Shagreen Furniture

Early east Asian shagreen was used on sword hilts and luxury book bindings, pocketbooks and boxes. In the 17th and 18th Centuries, the term began to be used for sharkskin or the skin of a rayfish. Jean-Claude Galluchat, a master leather worker in the court of Louis XV, made it popular among the aristocracy.
