Where should I buy furniture in China


Chinese furniture

Chinese furniture appeals to both the heart and the mind. For years they have found their way not only in hallways, salons and living rooms, but also in medical practices, hotel lounges and law firms. They inspire young and old alike. == break ==

A characteristic feature of Chinese furniture is that it can be combined with almost any other facility, regardless of whether it is modern or conservative.
A bright red sideboard from China, for example, can easily be integrated as a solitaire in an office furnished with English furniture. The fact that it stands out in terms of color and style does not bother at all, but only underlines the special charm of the Chinese furniture.

Antique Chinese Furniture

Among the Chinese furniture in our range you will also find some hand-picked antiques. Whether a piece of Chinese furniture is new, trimmed old or really antique, you can always see clearly from the item description and you can rely on our information.
Antique means that the Chinese furniture comes from at least the Qing Dynasty, i.e. from the time of the last emperor of China, Pu Yi, who had to leave the Forbidden City in Beijing for good in 1924. Unfortunately, we cannot provide more precise information on the age, as it is practically impossible to determine exactly whether a piece of furniture is 110 or 130 years old. Methods that could manage the exact age of the wood are so expensive that they are usually out of proportion to the purchase price of the piece of furniture.
In the case of antique furniture, which in our opinion are significantly older than a hundred years, we will point this out again separately in the item description.
As a rule, the antique Chinese furniture has been professionally restored on site in China by trained masters. Sometimes the old inner workings of the drawers or the shelves in cupboards and chests of drawers had to be replaced, as these parts were naturally exposed to the greatest stress.
In addition, there is very rarely antique Chinese furniture with original metal fittings, since during the "Great Leap Forward" (1958-61) the population was encouraged to donate all metal to the collective in order to have it melted down. to support Mao Tse Tung in the industrialization of the Great Empire
