Special Nonexistent Furniture

Tips
Layering Asian-motif throw pillows, from a scenic village or a budding hibiscus,  is a subtle way to create an eclectic, global look. 
Embrace patterns! Use them in window treatments, wall-hangings, or even upholstery.
Keep it clean with geometrics. You'll find classic lines in everything from wall mirrors to folding screens. 
Add one Asian-inspired element at a time, and you'll feel ready for the next accessory in no time.
Keep in mind that colors evoke a certain mood. Whether your decor is neutral or vibrant will help you determine what pieces make the cut.

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.
