Classical Furniture Inspired by Tradition

Our collection of Chinese classical furniture has been specially created to offer a range of timeless designs handcrafted from reclaimed wood and available in styles which replicate originals from China’s golden age of furniture making. Our range includes ornate lacquered wedding cabinets, trunks and sideboards, chairs, coffee tables and book cabinets in natural wood finishes.

Our classical Chinese furniture encapsulates a design philosophy characterised by simplicity, symmetry, and elegance, rather than being tied to a specific era. The use of unadorned hardwoods, similar to the reclaimed timber we use for this range, has been highly valued by Chinese artisans since the Qing dynasty.

With the opening of trade routes, exotic hardwoods from Southeast Asia started to be imported. These durable woods enabled the creation of refined furniture with slim legs that highlighted the natural beauty of the valuable timber, in addition to the sought-after lacquered pieces. At Shimu, we take great pride in continuing the legacy of classical Chinese furniture, offering you these stunning items to enhance your living space.
