Chinese design has long been a source of inspiration for European and American furnituremakers: the Chippendale style of the mid-18th century, the Aesthetic style of the late 19th century and modernist design during the 1930s and 1940s are some of the more well-known examples. "Inspired by China: Contemporary Furnituremakers Explore Chinese Traditions' brings together 29 stellar examples of historic Chinese furniture, with 28 works made specifically for the exhibition. The 22 furnituremakers who made the new works -- from the United States, Canada and China -- are each recognized as leaders in the field of studio furniture.
