More Orient, Less Express
New shipment of Chinese antiques coming soon
We have finally returned after a long slow tour scouring rural China to source the most unusual hand carved antiquities and furniture made the traditional time honoured way by the local craftsmen.
Deliberately taking our time to explore the hard to reach places and immersing ourselves into the local culture to ensure that the pieces we return with are truly unique and genuine.
we often target pre-owned pieces that can be expertly restored at our workshop and slowly brought back to their original former glory. This stunning sideboard showcases perfectly how the buyers are able to see potential where others can’t:
Most of the pieces are vintage or made from reclaimed solid timber which brings with it all the character of real wood, the unique grain, colours and often distinctive worn edges and imperfections, so you know that each piece has a story and is steeped in history.
All of our antique Chinese furniture is made primarily from sustainable resources and more importantly made to last. From beautiful slow hand-crafted sideboards and wardrobes with hand carved fascias and trim to the more rustic pre-loved workers stools with real charm. You’ll never see these on the council kerbside cleanout.
