The term “Asian inspired furniture” isn’t just reserved for black lacquered chests and painted tables. Asian design philosophies have influenced hardwood furniture around the world, and especially here in the United States.
This kind of Eastern design influence is evident in the use of vertical moon-shaped cuts and irregular joinery techniques, such as is seen in our Contemporary Craftsman and Exeter collections, respectively.
You’ll even see the influence of Asian design in Mid-Century Modern furniture and collections that avoid right angles.
Check out some of our favorite Asian-inspired furniture collections below:
Contemporary Craftsman Collection
Discover Far East influence paired with American Arts & Crafts design as they coalesce in our Contemporary Craftsman collection. This outstanding dining table is handcrafted by skilled Vermont woodworkers with just the right ratio of gentle curves to clean lines that embrace aspects of both distinct furniture styles. Easily customize in your choice of wood and size to make this made-to-order dining table ideal for your space and family gatherings.
Cherry Moon Collection
The Cherry Moon collection has elements of Arts and Crafts, contemporary Asian, and modern American design philosophies yielding a light but grounded appearance. Rich black walnut, half-moon drawer pulls complement our solid cherry, maple, and walnut hardwood furnishings. Reverse-tapered legs, posts and an intricate cove under the tops round out the design to give any room of your home a comforting natural feeling of understated elegance.
Modern American Collection
Our high end Modern American Furniture is inspired by George Nakashima’s designs. Nakashima was an American architect who practiced in the American Craftsman era. He spent time in Japan and India working with Antonin Raymond, the “father of Modern architecture in Japan.” One of Raymond’s most prolific architectural projects was in collaboration with Frank Lloyd Wright, who pioneered the “Modern American” design movement during his career in the first half of the 20th century.
Astrid Bedroom Furniture
Astrid’s mid-century modern American design features deeply splayed legs producing elegant, futuristic cantilevers. The Astrid Bedroom Furniture Collection, named after a beautiful Scandinavian goddess, is an engineering feat that defies expectations and inspires a sense of Zen. Handmade in Vermont using eco-friendly, sustainably harvested solid wood, Astrid’s clean, simple, minimalist design creates an oasis of luxurious quiet harmony for the high end urban bedroom.
Audrey Dining Furniture
Audrey dining furniture features a mid-century modern look with a contemporary twist. Crafted in luxurious real solid wood (your choice of American black walnut wood or natural cherry), these pieces are sophisticated, elegant and environmentally friendly. The Audrey collection blends contemporary Asian influence with International Modernism and American craftsmanship to create a style of its own.
Exeter Dining Furniture Collection
The Exeter collection boasts an impressive mixture of perfectly balanced isometric engineering paired with modern design. Our Exeter Dining Collection by Copeland Furniture creates a new unique feel with its simple straight lines and almost weightless appearance. Constructed using high quality solid American black walnut hardwood, the Exeter Extension Dining Table and Exeter Buffet are complimented flawlessly by Copeland’s Estelle Dining Chairs.
