Chinese furniture is known for its simple, graceful designs and timeless beauty and elegance. Early forms of furniture evolved as far back as 1000 BC, when painted and carved pieces began to emerge. Admired for generations, Chinese furniture takes the form of many different styles but even the smallest item can create a striking focal point.

Black lacquered furniture adds luxury to your living space and is characterised by a smooth, gleaming surface. The technique has been refined and developed over centuries and has continued to flourish with world-wide appeal. It involves sealing the wood in multi-layers of high gloss varnish, meticulously built up on top of a base coat. The result is an extremely durable finish, which is a work of art in its own right.

Screens are another way to add impact to a Chinese style bedroom. They are not only beautiful, but functional too as they can be used to partition areas for privacy or hide unsightly corners. Decorative folding screens have been used for centuries and are a good way of adding Chinese art to a room. Light materials such as paper, cloth or thin fabric decorated with artwork were used, but today screens are made from a variety of natural materials such as bamboo, wood or coco stick.
