Asian Painting On Silk For Sale on 1stDibs

At 1stDibs, there are many versions of the ideal Asian painting on silk for your home. An Asian painting on silk — often made from fabric, silk and wood — can elevate any home. You’ve searched high and low for the perfect Asian painting on silk — we have versions that date back to the 18th Century alongside those produced as recently as the 20th Century are available. An Asian painting on silk made by Mid-Century Modern designers — as well as those associated with Folk Art — is very popular. Many designers have produced at least one well-made Asian painting on silk over the years, but those crafted by Poon Thai To, Rajhastani and Shunyu are often thought to be among the most beautiful.

How Much is an Asian Painting On Silk?

An Asian painting on silk can differ in price owing to various characteristics — the average selling price 1stDibs is $2,800, while the lowest priced sells for $295 and the highest can go for as much as $150,000.

Finding the Right Asian Art and Furniture for You

From Japanese handmade earthenware pottery, originating circa 14,500 B.C. and adorned with elaborate corded patterns known as jōmon, to natural elm case pieces and storage cabinets built in Qing dynasty–era China to mid-century Thai rice-paper charcoal rubbings, antique and vintage Asian art and furniture make for wonderful additions to all kinds of contemporary interiors.

Eastern elements elevate any home’s decor. Introduce zen sensibility to your living room, dining room and bedroom with the neutral color palettes and the natural materials such as rattan, bamboo and elm that we typically associate with traditional Asian furniture. Decorative handwoven embroideries and textiles originating from India and elsewhere on the continent, which can be draped over a bed or sofa or used as a wall hanging, can be as practical as they are functional, just as you wouldn’t seek out Japanese room-divider screens — often decorated with paintings but constructed to be lightweight and mobile — merely for privacy.

With everything from blanket chests to lighting fixtures to sculptures and carvings, it’s easy to tastefully bring serenity to your living space by looking to the treasures for which the East has long been known.

For British-born furniture designer Andrianna Shamaris, the Japanese concept of beauty in imperfection isn’t limited to her Wabi Sabi collection. She embraces it in her New York City apartment as well. In the living area, for instance, she retained the fireplace’s original black marble while swathing its frame and the rest of the room in bright white.

“We left the fireplace very clean and wabi-sabi, so that it blended into the wall,” says Shamaris, who further appointed the space with a hand-carved antique daybed whose plush pillows are upholstered in antique textiles from the Indonesian island of Sumba.

In the growing antique and vintage Asian art and furniture collection on 1stDibs, find ceramics from China, antiquities from Cambodia and a vast range of tables, seating, dining chairs and other items from Japan, India and other countries.
