European trade with China brought about a passion for chinoiserie, a style that captured fantasies of Chinese life – ephemeral pagodas, long-tailed birds, men in coolie hats, flower laden vines. During the 18th century, French artist Jean Baptiste Pillement combined Chinese themes in a particular and stylish manner which proved to be very popular.
Le Jardin Chinois celebrates the fantasy and timelessness of chinoiserie. The collection is a reflection of the West’s artistic fascination with the lifestyles, imagery, crafts and colors of this faraway land. The Brunschwig & Fils archive provided some of the designs that have been included in the numerous prints, weaves and embroideries found in the collection.
Brunschwig and Fils’ newest collection, Summer Palace, emulates the natural beauty and wonder of the best preserved imperial garden in the world in seven show-stopping patterns with matching wallcoverings. Each pattern seamlessly echoes the many delights of the garden and emulates Chinese life and folklore. Colored in the exuberant hues reflecting today’s color trends, this collection tells the story of historical Chinese culture and the harmonious essence and wonder of the magnificent Summer Palace gardens. Summer Palace mirrors the meticulous detail of the landscaped gardens and ancient pavilions of this landmark location
