Inspired by China

China has a great history in furniture design.
So great, in fact, the Peabody Essex Museum is presenting a new exhibition that highlights how China has inspired western furniture design. Inspired by China will feature 22 designers, specially selected for the event, from the US, Canada, and China. There will be a total of 57 pieces on display: 29 examples of historic Chinese furniture; and 28 pieces made specifically for the event.

The exhibition will run from this Saturday, October 28 to March 4, 2007. If you miss it, you can always catch the exhibition when it travels to the Museum of Art in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, from Nov. 30, 2007, to March 4, 2008.

Thanks to Metropolis Magazine for their Eastern Events listings.
