Vietnam Lacquerwares

I was looking for something to do one Saturday evening so I grabbed my camera and started taking pictures of random things inside the house. I stumbled upon some “unpacked” stuff from my Vietnam trip last month. Yes, I’ve been busy. :)
I bought some handmade lacquerwares from a shop in Pham Ngu Lao, District 1. It’s called A.M. Lacquerwares. You can view their website here.
Lacquerwares are wooden objects which are decoratively covered with many layers of varnish to make it look shiny. Asian lacquerwares are very popular among art collectors all over the world. I am not an art collector though… I just love the mix of colors and designs so I decided to buy some items as souvenir. :)
The first item is a photo album.
It is.
I guess no one uses photo albums to store printed pictures anymore...
So let me convert this to a scrapbook instead. LOL.


“Ball” Tealight holder set.
I really really like this one. I had a difficult time choosing for a design. But after much thought, I settled for the “oriental” look.
I bought this for roughly around  Php 800 (Philippine Pesos). Not bad at all!


Think, think, think… How can I renovate a room full of gadgets to something that is still “techie/modern” but would somehow have that “oriental” feel? I need tips.

so, the google search starts now…
