Using papier-mache to add delicate detailing to the face of the chair. In that time period people supported the idea of new materials being used and this is an example of what people supported.

|The Royal Pavilion|
|Long Gallery, Brighton Pavilion|
|Chinese House (Potsdam)|
The Chinese House symbolizes the place in time when all these exotic influences started appearing in the setting. This one for example is a chinoiserie influenced. Usually the setting of the building if they where private in china would be surrounded by gardens, this house not entirely private is still surrounded by nature. In this time period many ideas have blossomed on how artifacts, spaces and building are designed and reflect the cultural knowledge of people that own/create them. They take the concepts and transform them into their own interpretation and language they want it to speak.
