Eastern Ambience: Homes Inspired by the Ancient Art of Feng Shui

Feng shui, the Chinese art of placement, is an ancient architectural philosophy that dates from the Shang Dynasty (circa 1600–1050 B.C.). One of the Five Phases of Chinese metaphysics, feng shui, which is translated as “wind-water,” focuses on the art of creating abundance within the built environment. Its basic principles incorporate the placement and position of buildings and objects; the five elements—water, fire, earth, metal, and wood; and the theories of yin and yang (harmony of opposing forces) and qi (vital energy) to facilitate balance, wellbeing, wealth, and good fortune. In this Luxury Defined collection, we showcase five elegant homes designed in accordance with this ancient practice.
