Modern orientalism: How a traditional Chinese-style apartment in Beverly Hill is given a contemporary makeover

Oriental design is not often associated with a modern style, but with a little thinking out of the box, classic Chinese furniture pieces can also be incorporated into a sleek apartment. The owners of this apartment in Beverly Hill have a passion for Chinese history and culture, and have collected a number of antique pieces over the years, including this Chinese-style room divider.
While they have a sophisticated taste in these classic pieces, the owners are very forward-thinking and modern in their lifestyle. To reflect this in the design of the apartment, we decided to blend the old and the new to give this unit a contemporary makeover.
