Stepping Into The Bedroom 阶层式卧室

It is no surprise that Chinese or Oriental furniture are popular especially among the expats living in Malaysia. When it comes to that, Splendid Interior Décor does provide interior designs with Oriental feel. In fact, most of its designs will carry a very unique piece of furniture called the Tansu cabinet or usually known to many as the steps cabinet.

Tansu is a traditional mobile storage that was first used in the Genroku era of the Edo Period (1688-1704). Today this classic step cabinet can be found not only in Japan, but also China and Korea. Some interior designers prefer to shy away from adopting this furniture into their designs as it is not an easy piece to fit without much experience. However, this Chinese step cabinet can be considered as a signature of Splendid’s design – one could easily see a piece or sometimes a collection of these very classical furniture as a divider, a wall cabinet or just for pure decoration.

When it comes to owning a house, the bedroom interior is definitely an important focus as it is the place where we spend most of our time in. We can see that when one is abroad, the common phrase used is ‘There is no place like my home’; if one is back home then it would be ‘There is no place like my room’. This is why Splendid Interior Décor places much emphasis on designing bedrooms for a simple reason – one needs to feel good and sleep well to ensure that the body and mind will be ready to function again after a good rest. Thus, the professional designers are well-experienced in blending classical Chinese furniture into modern architectures. It is no doubt Splendid’s distinctive signature presentation where East meets West.

Splendid Interior Décor recent project was a luxury penthouse beautifully situated up North in Penang facing the sea. With a view fit for a king, the Peranakan style four poster bed was the choice of selection for the master bedroom as for centuries, bed has been a symbol of wealth and the Peranakans were among the most influential generations in the early 20th century. Not only so, there is also a pair of majestic Ming styled blue and white vases to compliment this nostalgic space.

中式或东方式的家具毫无疑问受到居住于马来西亚外国人士的欢迎。Splendid Interior Décor优美的设计,除了散发浓厚东方韵味,更有趣的是,大部分的设计都少不了一个独特的家具-称为Tansu柜子或阶层柜。

Tansu是日本传统的移动柜子,最先在江户的元禄时代(1688-1704)开始流传。今天,这个经典的柜子,不仅日本,中国和韩国也可见。一些室内设计师皆回避采用类似家具,因为如果缺乏相关经验,这并非可以轻易驾驭的家具设计。然而,中式的阶层柜是Splendid Interior   Décor标志性的设计,单独或几件古典家具作为分隔作用,一个墙柜或纯粹装饰。


Splendid Interior Décor最近的设计方案是环境优美的豪华公寓,向北可达槟城,面向大海。为了符合土生华人(Peranakan)的风格,几个世纪以来四柱床一直是主卧室的基调,同时是财富象征,而在20世纪初,土生华人是非常有影响力的一代。此外,蓝色和白色明代风格花瓶宏伟兼明亮对比,完美匹配怀旧空间。
