I heart Pagodas!

Just some inspiration for your Friday...

I've had pagodas on the brain since reading Style Court's blog and Courtney's post on the Chinese Room in the Claydon House and it's influence on current design trends.

Being it Friday, my virtual "shopping day", I went in search for some pagoda inspired designs on 1st dibs, and here is what I found...


Lacquered Chinoserie Cabinet from lawson-fenning on 1st dibs


Faux Bamboo Pagoda chandelier from Chapman Radcliff on 1st dibs


Pair of Pagoda Lamps from pieces on 1st dibs


Chinese Red Pagoda lantern with brunelli designs on 1st dibs

Hope you have a great weekend!!!

Kate, I love all these objects you have chosen! I am really developing a serious thing for chinoiserie. While I abhor the heavy, trite stuff that is so Oriental cliche', I genuinely love all this ornamental oriental gear in lighter hues.

P.S. I was in ZGallerie the other day (of all places) and saw a cool pagoda-style lantern holder made of wood. Actually, it had great bones and was quite chic. It was marked down to only $12 and would look awesome painted - may have to go back and get it.

oh yah, they are so interesting to look at. I almost bought that yellow lamp in the first photo! It was on ebay, but it ended up selling for $400, way too much for me.

That can be the best and worst part of Ebay, you fall in love with something and then so does everyone else and they price you out of buying it. But, I'll keep my eyes open and let you know if I should see something like this one there :)

Thanks for the comment Michelle!
