THE ORIENT

Orientalism describes a term used to encompass interest in The East, Middle East, South Asia and East Asia. Trade was in full flow to and from the East prompting a vogue for all things Oriental, both in style and decoration.

Wealthy women’s bedrooms became adorned with a European fantasy of China including the use of chinoiserie wallpaper (a French word roughly translated as Chinese-esque) lacquerware, porcelain, fretwork and famille rose ceramics.

Completed in 1822, George IV’s Royal Pavilion at Brighton and the dramatic Pagoda building at Kew are two glorious representatives of Georgian Orientalism.
