cooperhewitt's Object of the Day: Chinoiserie Wallpaper, c. 1770-80. 
This 18th c. English wallpaper was designed in the style of Jean Pillement, french illustrator and royal painter to Marie Antoinette. 
The repeating pattern of flowers and foliage show Asian motifs w/ a Western spin. More about how Pillement gained inspiration for this design without actually setting foot in Asia.
