In a recent ad campaign for Chanel's fragrance Coco, the ravishing Keira Knightley was photographed in front of a beautiful hand-painted Chinoiserie panel with a gold-leaf background.

For an event staged in the US, we were asked to replicate the feeling of original but in a smaller scale, this time on a folding screen, sans gold leaf, in a very tight deadline. Working from a few photographs, Geoff was able to re-create the design effortlessly with his team of craftsmen. The project including production of the white lacquer paneled folding screen took less than two days!
