Testimonials


The table is beautiful. It is the exact size, shape, colour and everything we wanted and the quality of the paintings is fantastic. We love it. Thank you for all your help and apart from telling the world about you, we will be visiting you again in the (hopefully near) future.
Mrs M. Marsland, Oldham



About 4 years ago, when we were having our home extended and our new bedroom was under construction, I came across your website. It was love at first sight! Finally our bedroom is furnished with your gorgeous furniture. We are totally thrilled with it. In the brochure it looked great, when we visited your showroom it looked even better. Now it is installed in our house it is amazing. Not only does it all look fabulous but the quality is superb. You were friendly and helpful when we visited and kept us informed of delivery dates. I would not hesitate to recomend you to anyone and hope to do business with you again. Thank you for making my dream come true!
Mrs M. Baker, Bromsgrove



I have ordered recently an Apothecarys Chest, which is absolutely beautiful. This was my second purchase from Shimu, I am a returning customer. The chest arrived within 2 weeks of ordering. The delivery came on time and they even unpacked it for me. The staff at Shimu went out of their way to accommodate me with a convenient day for my delivery. I received an exceptional service from Shimu. I would recommend Shimu without any hesitation. Thank you so much for your amazing service!
Ms. A. Braun, London



I'm very pleased with my Shanxi Painted Cabinet. I knew it would be a lovely piece of furniture but I have to say that the standard of finish and the overall quality of construction really is excellent. I'm absolutely thrilled with my purchase and am sure I will be a repeat customer in the future. Delivery service was also very good - they arrived within the allotted time and gave a helpful update call when they were less than an hour away.
Ms. S. Nichols, London



Just a note to let you kinow that the console table you had made for me is stunning. The finish could not be closer to the sample I sent you even if it had been made from the same wood! It is a beautiful piece!
Mrs. L. Heaton, Touch Interiors, London



Just a quick note to thank you for the safe and speedy arrival of the framed embroidery I ordered. I was delighted with the item and it proved a perfect and much appreciated Christmas present for my wife. Like me, she was enchanted by it and it has a place of honour on our stairway.
Mr. R. Nash, Guernsey



I just wanted to thank you for the excellent way my order was dealt with. The lamp came quickly and was extremely well packaged. I'm delighted with my lotus lamp - it's exactly what I wanted. Many thanks!
Mrs. J. Skilbeck, Lampeter



The table arrived today. It looks great - such a lovely solid piece of wood and the chairs are beautifully made, so much heavier than the usual modern stuff. Your delivery service was brilliant as was the packing from China. Once again a fantastic result, many thanks!
Mrs. J. Millard, Lymington



The sideboard arrived on Thursday - absolutely beautiful and the delivey guys were superb. It is now finally unwrapped and in situ and we are already thinking of another piece for the house.

Just wanted to let you know that our furniture was delivered last Wednesday. The delivery people were very helpful and the furniture was very well packed - all in all an outstanding service! We finished opening the furniture this weekend and we are both extremely delighted with the pieces. They are exceptional, especially the three scroll tables, which are lovely! So thanks for an excellent service!
Ms M. Hunt, Brighton



The coffee table arrived as promised on Monday afternoon. The delivery men were excellent - they carried the table upstairs to the sitting room and unpacked it with care. We are delighted with our table. It looks fantastic with the other black lacquer pieces in the room. My only regret is that we do not have a larger home. I would love to buy more!
Mrs C. Fielding, Trowbridge



Just a note to say how delighted we are with our 'bespoke' Chinese cabinet. It's absolutely perfect, looks beautiful and is incredibly well made. Thank you for taking our requirements and designing such a wonderful piece of furniture.
Mrs. S. Ratcliffe, Oxford



Just to say that my console arrived ths morning and I am delighted with it. It has obviously been made by craftsmen and the level of finish is superb. As an ex Head of Collection Conservation for a major art gallery, I am the world's pickiest person whne it comes to packing objects and I would employ your team any day, haven't seen better!
Mrs J. Millard, Lymington



As we are moving to another country, we've been in the process of buying furniture to take with us. I can't tell you how many disappointing experiences we are having with qualtiy and delivery. That's why I really want to thank Shimu and you personally for always being in touch and reliable. It makes a big difference when your needs as a customer are met without any hassle. Apart from that, the quality of Shimu's furniture is quite impressive and I will try to spread the word about your company.
Mrs K. Logofet, London



The boxes arrived yesterday. Many thanks for the prompt delivery, they are beautiful and exactly what I wanted. Your service was simply excellent and it was a real pleasure to shop with you. I will be telling my friends and family who are also interested in oriental furniture and artifacts.
Mrs V. Wood, London



Our TV Cabinet has been delivered and we are over the moon with it - really, really pleased. It fits perfectly where we wanted it and arrived in excellent condition - really well packaged. The effect of the butterflies is exactly what we wanted and the colours are perfect. Thank you for doing a brilliant job.
Mrs J. Campbell, York



We have taken delivery of our TV Cabinet. I was quite worried that maybe it wouldn't be quite what I had envisaged but I am happy to say it is perfect. I am thrilled with it. The design and size is exactly right and the workmanship is superb. It is ideal for hiding our 42" TV in a room where a TV looks out of place. I couldn't have asked for more. Thank you for all your help with the design and your attentive service at all times. Hopefully we will be back to visit your shop very soon.
Mrs R. Stanley, Shropshire



Just a quick note to say that the cabinet we collected on Friday afternoon is absolutely lovely. It's in perfect order and the design has worked out really well. Many thanks.
Mr & Mrs L. Towers, Ilkley



I just want to thank you for your excellent service, having just received my two storage trunks. They look perfect and I was most impressed with the speed and efficiency of delivery. I came across your website by chance and was a little nervous about ordering something unseen, but I will have no hesitation in using your company again, or in recommending you to friends.
Mrs. K. Thurston, Cambridgeshire



I'd just like to say thank you for the fantastic Ladies Cabinet and stool we've received. It's even better than I had hoped, the build quality is fantastic and the finish even better than that. The customised size fits perfectly. I would recommend you to others without hesitation.
Mr. M. Hla, Brighton



Just a note to tell you that we are delighted with the Square Stool that was safely delivered yesterday. Thanks also for your brochure. The items you offer are remarkably beautiful and of superb quality. We also appreciate the excellent service that you give. Thank you for everything.
Mr. B. Anson, Lymington



Your service has been exemplary. When I need to replace any of my furniture in the future I will certainly be returning to Shimu ! I'm delighted with the pieces of furniture I have bought from you and they will give me a lot of pleasure for years to come.
Ms. T. Harrison, Bucks



I just wanted to write to say that I am absolutely delighted with my Chinese furniture, which was delivered to me in Edinburgh a couple of weeks ago. It is superb, and I could not be happier with it. It complements perfectly the 1950s Chinese carved camphorwood pieces that I have already, and makes the rooms that it occupies very special. As well as the furniture itself being perfect, the service that I received from you and your company was also first rate.
Ms. J. Forbes, Edinburgh



Let me thank you for your exceptional customer service before, during, and after the sale and delivery of our wonderful furniture. We were skeptical about ordering quality and antique furniture on-line, but once we received the pieces we had ordered, we were thrilled. Your photos and website were great, but they didn't do justice to the pieces themselves. The beauty and quality of each piece far exceeded our expectations (which were high), and we are ecstatically happy to have each of them in our home! We want to thank you for your patience, perserverence, and professionalism in all that you did for us. Our home is now complete, with the furniture we received from Shimu as the centrepieces to our home.
Mr. P. Ericsson, London



I have received the cabinet and the trunk and I am absolutely thrilled to bits. Thank you very much. Very impressed with the shipping company as well. Thanks again.
Ms. L. Cacitti, Udine, Italy



Just to let you know that my table arrived last week and I am absolutely delighted with it. It's even better than it looked in the catalogue and I love the warm elm colour. I shall be recommending Shimu to all my friends! Many thanks.
Mrs C. Cox, Pinner



We searched the web for painted chinese furniture and visited several dealers. With the notable exception of Shimu, the quality and finish was poor. When we visited Saltaire we found just what we were looking for and at the same price as the competition. Your delivery was on time and the cabinets just what we wanted. As a matter of interest we have just come back from a long trip to China and your furniture was cheaper than the items we were shown at the showrooms, even after haggling. Thanks and every success to you.
Mrs S. Taylor, Lincoln



We received the painted mongolian cabinet this morning and we absolutely love it!!! It couldn't be more perfect! Its even more elegant and beautiful than we expected. I actually prefer that the colors are more muted than pictured! Thank you very much!
Mrs J. O'Connor, London



I just wanted to say that our Ming console tables and second daybed table arrived this morning and we are absolutely delighted with them. They look fabulous. Thank you so much.
Mrs S. Jetley, Shropshire



Finally we have the antique cabinet at home and we were really surprised, it is gorgeous!! We are very happy with it. Thank you very much.
Mrs M. Valero, Barcelona



Just to say the antique Tibetan table arrived today and I'm extremely happy with it. It's just right, thank you very much.
Mrs J. Mossman, Nottingham



I recieved my butterfly cabinets on Friday, and they are beautiful. I just wanted to say thank you for your help, and express how delighted I am with them.
Ms L. Majeed, Bedfordshire



Quick thanks to you at Shimu regarding the furniture we had delivered this week. The finish is very good and they are good, solid pieces - just what we wanted, thank you. Also pleased that the delivery guys made it within the time booked despite the ice, and were apparently very careful in the process (I wasn't present at the time). Wish we hadn't waited so long to place the order!
Ms N. Giles, Worcester



Our black lacquer cabinet arrived yesterday and may I say how delighted we are both with the quality of the piece of furniture and the service you provided. I wondered if there was any way of conveying this to the craftsman who put it together? Thank you. I wish we had room in our little house for more!
Mrs M. Ormonde, Reading



My TV unit was delivered this morning and I justed wanted to let you know that I'm delighted with it. The quality of craftmanship is excellent. I will definitely be ordering more furniture from you and recommending you to family, friends and colleagues.
Miss C. Barnes, Abingdon



Just to confirm that my cupboard arrived safely and I am delighted with it. Thanks for such an efficient service!
Mrs. C. McKay, Aberdeen



I just wanted to let you know that the pillow box arrived and looks as lovely as I remembered. I also wanted to say thank you for all of your help. We are delighted with the furniture and can't praise you highly enough for the help you gave us during the ordering process.
Mrs. S. Kennard, Berkshire



May I thank you for your service in supplying the camphor chest. I am extremely delighted with the chest, its renovation and the subtle feeling it gives off. The wood continues to keep this piece of furniture 'alive' so I can only respect its history.
Mr. T. Waspe, Cumbria



I had to write to say how delighted I am with the Chinese antique elm table which we received last week. I have been looking for some time for something with the size and "presence" which this table certainly has. Perfect!
Mrs. L. Hunt, Edinburgh



I just wanted to say that the three pieces of furniture I recently received are absolutely beautiful and one of the best purchases I have ever made. The finish, the density and quality of the wood and the beauty of the designs make these exceptional heirloom pieces. I lived in Hong Kong and China for many years and yet I never saw as fine elm wood furniture as these pieces and the prices are very reasonable considering the quality and shipping costs. That these pieces are reclaimed elm wood makes them very special indeed. Thank you so much.
S. Slater, Somerset
