We're coming to London! Visit our pop-up store, open 30th March to 7th April

We're very excited to announce our first pop-up store in London, to open at the Arthill Gallery in Kensington from the 30th March to the 7th April. You'll be able to view a wide selection of our Chinese antique furniture, handcrafted oriental furniture and homewares - on display for the first time outside our West Yorkshire showroom - and I will be there to answer any questions you may have.Shimu London Pop-Up Store

Whilst our 3000 square foot showroom in Yorkshire is a great place to view the widest selection of our furniture, we realise that it is a long way for many of you to come. The pop-up store therefore provides a great opportunity for those of you based in and around London to come and meet us and to view our beautiful Chinese antiques and handcrafted furniture in person.

If there is a particular item on our website that you've been considering then this is also a great chance to see it 'in the flesh' before buying. Just let us know in advance what you would like to view and if at all possible we will bring it down for you.

Chinese ink paintings

At our pop-up you'll also be able to view a selection of original ink paintings by the acclaimed Chinese artists, Shi Rongqiang and Liu Yitong - beautiful, contemporary art using ancient traditions. Both artists have recently exhibited in London, including a solo exhibition by Liu Yitong at the British Museum, and I'm sure you will agree that their wonderful paintings perfectly complement our furniture.

I do hope you will be able to join us at some point over the ten days we are in London to view some of our beautiful pieces in person. The store will be open every day from Saturday 30th March up to and including Sunday 7th April, 10:00am - 5:00pm on weekdays, 10:00am - 4:00pm Sat and Sun. It's 5 minutes from the nearest tube (West Brompton or West Kensington) and you can find directions here.

If you plan to pay us a visit and there is something you would particularly like to see then just let us know in advance by replying to this email or to info@shimu.co.uk, or feel free to give me a call on 0800 088 6800.

You can also register your interest and share the event with others on our Facebook page here.

I look forward to seeing you soon in London or at our permanent showroom here in West Yorkshire.

James Cottrell
Director, Shimu
