Chinese Antique Furniture: From the ancient civilisation that gave us the Ming vase, it is hardly surprising that Chinese antiques are becoming highly sought after the world over. Superbly crafted and rich in historically inspired decorative motifs, Chinese antique furniture is now highly collectible and considered an essential “accent” furniture in any design conscious home, looking to bring a global dimension to any decorating theme.
Characteristically, Chinese antique furniture is made from precious wood types, such as mahogany, sandalwood or rose wood. It tends to be lacquered, usually in black or red. It is sometimes carved. Inlaid or painted decoration is frequently added to its surface. In particular, black lacquer furniture is today very much in vogue among antique collectors and interior designers due to its sophisticated, stylish and functional look. It blends excellently with today's modern interiors.
