What is the oriental decoration?
On the contrary, it is a unique style, which in its different areas of the East has its peculiarities.
However, these particularities mix and overlap. Therefore, we speak of oriental style in general and not of Chinese or Japanese in particular.
The oriental style is characterized for being a style that transmits a lot of tranquility and serenity. This is due to the importance they give in the East to the spiritual area of the human being.
Therefore, the decoration is focused on man seeking the harmony of his soul and that the interaction of this with nature is also peaceful.
Hence the importance they attach to elements of nature such as water, stones or plants.
