Hutong in Beijing - Recent trip to China

This photograph was taken after an early winter snow from our Hotel near Forbidden City.  We thought the roof lines outlined by the wisps of snow were beautiful.
Hutongs (simplified Chinese: 胡同; traditional Chinese: 衚衕; pinyin: hútòng; Wade–Giles: hu-t'ung) are a type of narrow streets or alleys, commonly associated with northern Chinese cities, most prominently Beijing.

In Beijing, hutongs are alleys formed by lines of siheyuan, traditional courtyard residences.[1] Many neighbourhoods were formed by joining one siheyuan to another to form a hutong, and then joining one hutong to another. The word hutong is also used to refer to such neighbourhoods.

Since the mid-20th century, the number of Beijing hutongs has dropped dramatically as they are demolished to make way for new roads and buildings. More recently, some hutongs have been designated as protected areas in an attempt to preserve this aspect of Chinese cultural history.

Old trend meets New with our Ikat pillows!

Posted by 3dcartadmin on 11/8/2013
Michaelian Home is on trend with its Ikat Colonial Williamsburg pillows! While Ikat (or Ikkat) is a hot, popular pattern, it is also considered to be one of the oldest forms of textile decoration. These handsome hooked pillows have a sophisticated and modern look but a surprising design source: 18th-century Indian ikat fabrics in the Colonial Williamsburg archives. Contemporary artisans have achieved with graduated yarns the shades of color that the makers of the antique cloth created by tie-dying warp threads to achieve a "clouded" pattern. Trend meets tradition with the WILLIAMSBURG brand! See here for more information on the history of Ikat designs. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ikat With 6 different colors to choose from, Ruby, Peacock, Shade, Prune, Cocoa, & Pistachio, you are sure to find a hooked pillow to fit your home. You can find them online at www.michaelianhome.com today! Part numbers NCU419, NCU420, NCU421, NCU422, NCU424, NCY426.
