I've seen Chinese style tables like these painted white or another color with high-gloss paint to give it that lacquered look. They end up looking both modern and traditional at the same time. I think that could work in this instance.

you people sound really uneducated: "take a japanese/chinese calligraphy class and voila! you got instant art on par with the "asian paintings" (as if ALL of asian art looks the same)" would you say the same thing about a western artist?

i think it's too industrial looking for this space...maybe if it was an old loft with a lot of exposed brick and steel support beams.

i placed a painted canvas on top of my electric panel. i think using a painted canvas with hinges should work in this instance. the frame just draws more attention to it.

I'd put shallow shelves on the right hand side of the wall filled with small vases and art work.

And on the left hand side of the wall, I'd put a large art work to balance it out.

I'd use the Louis Ghost Armchair. I think its lightness in material and color make for a nice contrast to the heavy look of the table, while its shape compliments the table very well.

Somebody should "out" this store for environmental irresponsibility! What a waste of perfectly good products! More things to fill up our landfills. I'm shocked that this is happening nowadays that the green movement has been part of the mainstream for years. This is totally backwards!
