At its core, Chinese style is a marriage of the traditional philosophies of Buddhism, Taoism and Confucianism. Its aesthetic is also influenced by the long history of Chinese art, the regional characteristics of northern and southern houses, and the fusion trend, which began in the 1930s when Western-style furniture was incorporated into the homes of the Chinese elite.
