When Shari, of little blue deer, suggested the pattern for my new blog header, I was inspired to find more examples of Chinese Fretwork in design. So off to Houzz I went.
Fretwork is usually made up of a complicated, repeating, geometric pattern, and can be seen in the lines of furniture, screens, fabrics and wallpaper. This was a favored technique of Chippendale in his Chinese period.
Below fretwork was the inspiration for the striking fabric and wallpaper used in dynamic combination.
Tell me, if you look around your house I bet you'll find at least one example of fretwork! To read more about Chinese Fretwork in design read this week's Ideabook written for Houzz.
