Oriental Home Décor: Asian Screen, Coffee Table, Bedspreads

Updated on June 2, 2011

Today’s Oriental home décor ideas are vibrant, lively and eclectic. It is no longer a pure breed. Rather, it mixes East and Westin in perfect harmony. Increasingly more people are looking for Asian inspired interior decoration. Oriental décor refers to decoration items from China, Korea, Japan, Indian, Tibet and many other countries. There are many decorating ideas to choose for your home. Ranging from ornate porcelain, Ming dynasty vase, sumptuous dining table to emperor style armchair, the choice is simply endless. For today’s modern urban home, I would recommend Oriental screens, bedspreads, and coffee table. Most of them are relatively affordable than the museum style furniture.
