Featuring over 300 beautiful photographs and extensive commentary, China Style blends the chic designs of modern China with the sensibilities of traditional Chinese art.
Chinese interior design is a kaleidoscope of competing influences: scholarly gardens versus opium dens, imperial palaces battling concrete and steel high-rises, rural simplicity fighting urban chaos, China Style gives an insider's look at the interiors that draw from this vivid and powerful tradition, a tradition that is constantly being reinterpreted to produce a fresh and dynamic style of contemporary design.

Chapters include:
* China Style Goes Global
* Ming and Qing Elegance Redefined
* Chinoiserie Old and New
* The New Shanghai Style
* China Modern
* Decorating China Style

The interiors range from formal metropolitan apartments featuring priceless Ming antiques to trendy Shanghai art deco homes from the 1930s and Maoist-inspired chic from the 1950s and 60s, to the unique overseas Chinese shophouses of Southeast Asia and the cutting-edge Chinese art minimalism of contemporary Beijing and Hong Kong.
