Oriental sideboards for oriental interior design

Oriental sideboards are a popular choice for those looking to add a touch of culture and sophistication to their home. These pieces of furniture are typically characterized by their elegant lines and intricate details, which can range from carved motifs and inlaid patterns to painted scenes and gilded finishes.

Oriental sideboards: beauty and practicality combined

Here at Shimu we have a beautiful collection of oriental sideboards for your home, with pieces ranging in design and style from original antiques with their unique beauty and charm, through to new sideboards, handmade from reclaimed hardwoods. With a wide range of stylish oriental and Chinese sideboards to choose from, our range makes it easy to replicate oriental style interior design.

One of the benefits of choosing an oriental sideboard is the versatility of the designs available. These pieces can work well in a variety of settings, from formal living rooms to more casual family rooms, dining rooms and bedrooms. They can also be used to store a wide range of items, from dishes and linens to books and decorative objects.

When it comes to choosing an oriental sideboard, there are a few key factors to consider. Firstly, think about the size and scale of the piece. Make sure it will fit in the space you have available and that it will be proportionate to the other furniture in the room. Next, think about the style and finish of the sideboard. Do you prefer a more traditional look, with carved details and a dark wood finish, or more of an oriental modern interior design aesthetic, with clean lines and a lighter finish?

Finally, consider the function of the sideboard. Will you be using it to store and display dishes and serve-ware, or will it be used more for storage and organisation? Choosing a sideboard with ample storage space, such as drawers and internal shelves, can be a practical choice if you plan to use it for more than just display.

Overall, oriental sideboards are a beautiful and functional addition to any home. Whether you choose a traditional or modern style, these pieces can add a touch of culture and sophistication to any space.

Modern oriental interior design ideas for your home

At Shimu we offer a wide range of beautiful oriental antiques, furniture, accessories and homewares, designed to help you create stylish Asian style interiors. Modern oriental interior design combines the clean lines and minimalism of modern design with the rich, cultural details of traditional oriental styles.

Our products provide plenty of inspired interior design ideas and with this in mind, here are a few tips for using modern oriental interior design in your home:

Choose a colour palette: oriental design is often associated with rich, deep colours like red, gold, and black. To create a modern twist, consider using softer, more muted shades, or mix them with neutral shades like white, cream, and beige.

Incorporate cultural details: Traditional oriental design is known for its intricate patterns and motifs, which can be found on everything from furniture and textiles to ceramics and artwork. To incorporate these details in a modern way, look for pieces that feature simplified or abstracted versions of these motifs.

Use natural materials: oriental design often incorporates natural materials like wood, stone, and bamboo, which can help bring a sense of warmth and organic beauty to the space. Look for pieces that feature these materials, or consider adding them through accessories like vases, baskets, or planters.

Add greenery: oriental design often incorporates plants and flowers as a way to bring a sense of nature into the home. Consider adding a few potted plants or placing fresh flowers in a vase to bring a touch of life and colour to the space.

Incorporate symmetry: Symmetry is an important element of oriental design, and can help bring a sense of balance and harmony to the space. Consider incorporating symmetry through the use of matching pairs of furniture or accessories, or by hanging artwork in a symmetrical pattern on the walls.
