Lacquered objects made in East Asia first reached Europe in about the early 16th century. Their flawless finish and light-reflecting qualities made them hence highly prized.

Lacquer became available to European elites, likewise other luxury items including silk and porcelain.

The taste for oriental decoration grew in France in the middle years of the 18th century.

The demand for lacquer was so great that dealers in luxury goods (marchands-merciers) dismantled Japanese cabinets and Chinese Coromandel screens imported in earlier years.

Cabinet-makers re-used the lacquer panels to fabricate new French furniture.

East Asian lacquer continued to influence European art throughout the later 19th and the 20th centuries, with periodic revivals of interest.

 

Vosges custom designs and fabricates luxury lacquer furniture.

As an illustration, we craft side tables, screens or table tops inspired by Neo-classicism, Art Deco or Modernist styles.
