"Far Out, Far East: Pushing the Envelope of Asian Design"

"Far Out, Far East: Pushing the Envelope of Asian Design" a discussion with Jonathan Fong, interior decorator, author, and design expert on HGTV and USA Network home makeover programs. Asian design has come a long way since the days of standing a shoji screen in the corner or putting a big fan above the bed. Suddenly, Asian interior design is big. But what is it exactly, how do you get it , and do you want it” In this humorous visual presentation, Jonathan Fong explores this ever-expanding aesthetic and explains that Asian design is as vast and contradictory as the continent that inspired it. Hong Kong-born Fong will discuss some of the prevalent themes in Asian style; how to accent your home; a different look at Feng Shui that he calls Fong Shui; and his favorite shopping sources. He'll also share the secrets of home makeover shows gleaned from his experience on USA Network's "Before and Afternoon Movie" home design series.
