has long been admired for its artistic strength and wonderful craftsmanship revealing the beauty and texture of natural wood. From elegant classic lines to magnificent carving and fine inlays, Oriental furniture is still crafted by hand using valuable solid timbers such as Rosewood, Blackwood, ‘Ji Chi mu’ and ash which is lovingly hand polished to perfection. Chinese Rosewood, also known as ‘Hua Li Mu’ sits well in both traditional and contemporary settings, bringing the character and warmth of real wood to your home.
With extensive experience of importing Chinese furniture over the last 30 years, we regularly see substantial variations in the cost of what initially appear to be identical products. With a background in craftsmanship and design, we view everything with a critical eye, which often reveals a considerable difference in all round quality, ranging from the craftsmanship and materials through to processes and finishing. Basically the lower the price, the lower the quality.
Seasoning the wood for the UK climate is particularly important for stability and longevity but isn’t evident until you have owned a piece of furniture for several months when problems may begin to surface. To avoid our furniture is kiln dried to suit the UK environment, using solid ash in addition to a selection of traditional woods, all artistically worked by accomplished craftsmen.
To avoid problems often associated with ‘internet’ based purchases we are discerning in our selection and have furniture to see ‘in the flesh’ and take away from stock. We also hold an additional 40’ container of furniture with regular shipments arriving throughout the year if you wish to order something different or even have your own design made.
With the benefit of a personal service and a fine display of Oriental Furniture and lamps to buy and take away, why not enjoy a visit to see our display of Chinese Furniture here in Cambridgeshire.
As long established importers we commission bespoke furniture, from small tables through to custom made bedrooms, studies and dining rooms, in fact anything as long as it ‘s a practical proposition.
Our connections and experience ensure consistent outstanding results and reliable quality.
Western and contemporary styles are available and each item may be personalised or used as a template to create your own bespokedesign.
