Create a living space inspired by Chinese tradition

From chairs used by Chinese officials, through to stools, benches and traditional yoke-back chairs, our collection is sourced by us directly from China. Each piece is carefully chosen by us and is lovingly restored before being shipped to the UK. Restoration is carried out with great care and respect by skilled craftsmen who use traditional techniques to ensure that none of the original charm or rich patina is lost.

Antique Chinese chairs and stools are as versatile as they are beautiful. Side stools, for example, are perfect for use as side tables, or why not use a rustic elm bench as practical hallway seating? Traditional Chinese armchairs make wonderful occasional seating, whilst they can also be used to complement other dining furniture you may have. Alongside our range of antique chairs, stools and benches, we also offer a collection of stunning pieces including sideboards, chests, trunks, altar tables and many more. In addition, why not take a look at our range of high quality accessories and homewares, including beautiful items for your home such as soft furnishings, rugs, wall art, lighting, ceramics and ornaments.
