For spring 2013, visions of the Far East are making
a whirlwind of a comeback in the home decor world. At the New York International Gift Fair, we spied traditional motifs, often relegated to vases and statues, reinterpreted as functional home accessories, such as mirrors, lamps, and stools. Everything from elephants to pagodas is getting a bigger, bolder, more colorful makeover. If your style veers more toward traditional than contemporary, don't worry. Classic interpretations, such as an elegant chinoiserie pattern, still let you bring the Asian-inspired trend home.
