Shanghai-based Sharon Leece has written China Style, China Modern and
China Living to showcase China’s design scene, plus is editor- at-large for the
Architectural Digest China magazine.
In the first quarter of 2012, designers – and consumers – in China are looking more
closely at everyday living, a dialogue between old and new, classic and modern.
In a society that not so long ago preferred to toss out the old without a care in the
world, a renewed appreciation for designs of different styles and eras is good news
indeed. Moreover, people are realising that they don’t have to make hard-lined
distinctions – better to appreciate both old and new, and enjoy living in harmony
with both. No more cookie-cutter interiors straight out of the pages of a catalogue.
