Urban Oriental

Luxurious living, albeit in a modernist vein, forms the foundation for designs built sleek and spare. Inspired by the world's tallest building, Taipei 101, the sensibility is imposing, austere and impossibly chic. Graphic patterns, and equally graphic neutrals, create a vision that needs little in the way of adornment, only perfect order and a structure of steel.

Native North Carolinian Tracy Bulla has been Home Accents Today's product editor since 2002. As a graduate of UNC-Chapel Hill's School of Journalism, Tracy's first foray into reporting involved covering the financial markets. This short-lived enterprise resulted in no great loss to the world of finance when it became apparent that the reporter could not balance her own checkbook. Tracy then followed her lifelong passion for fashion into the glamorous world of design where she is continuously in thrall to the lure of beautiful, well-designed objects of desire. Lo, Tracy's pampered Pekingese, shares her appreciation for exquisite style by choosing to only chew up the most expensively embellished Italian shoes.
