Challen has been a name, well-associated with the finest crafted pianos since 1804.Pianos that have graced royal households, concert halls, music conservatoriums, hotel and broadcasting studios for decades.

Challen. A name closely associated with the British Broadcasting Corporation for over 30 years. Where excellent tonal quality, reliability and consistency in performance have made it the British piano of the British Broadcasting Corporation; and won it the much coveted "Royal Appointment Award" for product excellent.

Chinoiserie entered the European repertory in the mid-to-late 17th century; the work of Athanasius Kircher influenced the study of orientalism. The popularity of chinoiserie peaked around the middle of the 18th century, when it was easily assimilated into rococo by the works of François Boucher. It declined when it seemed to European eyes the antithesis of neoclassicism.

Chinoiserie is often expressed in the decorative arts of Europe, and its expression in architecture was entirely in the field of whimsical follies. By contrast, the serious transformations that Chinese models effected in the eighteenth century, on the plain style of Early Georgian English furniture, notable in the cabriole leg, or on the "naturalistic" style of English landscape gardening, to take two clear examples, are not considered instances of chinoiserie.

Chinoiserie has made a comeback since the late 20th century. Modern interpretations of chinoiserie incorporate modern design elements and techniques. Chinoiserie can be seen as in influence in many housewares throughout Europe and North America

Various European monarchs, such as Louis XV of France, gave special favor to chinoiserie, as it blended well with the rococo style. Entire rooms, such as those at Château de Chantilly, were painted with chinoiserie compositions, and artists such as Antoine Watteau and others brought expert craftsmanship to the style.
