Chinese Coffee Tables

Chinese coffee tables have become increasingly popular among homeowners and interior designers alike, and it's not difficult to see why. The unique blend of traditional Chinese design and functional coffee table features make these pieces of furniture a perfect addition to any home. At Shimu, we specialise in the sale of antique Chinese furniture, Chinese-style reproduction furniture, homewares and accessories inspired by oriental design. Our collection of Chinese coffee tables is no exception, and we pride ourselves on the quality and craftsmanship of these stunning pieces.

Add a touch for elegance with an antique Chinese coffee table

One of the most popular types of Chinese coffee tables is the antique Chinese trunk or chest. Traditionally used to store clothing, linens and valuables, these trunks and chests can now be repurposed as a coffee table with storage. They provide a unique and interesting focal point in any living room, and the storage space is a great place to store blankets, pillows, and other living room essentials.

Another popular type of Chinese coffee table is the low table. These tables are traditionally used for serving tea and snacks, but they can also be used as a coffee table. Low tables are perfect for small living rooms or tight spaces as they take up less visual space than larger coffee tables. Additionally, low tables often feature intricate carvings and designs, which make them a beautiful piece of furniture in their own right.

Antique Chinese coffee tables are not only functional, but they can also add a touch of history and culture to any interior. Antique Chinese furniture is known for its unique craftsmanship, use of natural materials and intricate designs. These features make antique Chinese furniture a sought-after addition to any home.

Coffee tables in contemporary interiors

When incorporating antique Chinese furniture into a contemporary interior, it's important to strike a balance between the old and the new. One way to do this is to mix antique Chinese coffee tables with modern furniture pieces. For example, an antique Chinese trunk could be paired with a modern sofa and accent chairs. This creates a unique contrast between the traditional and the modern, which adds interest to the space.

Another way to incorporate antique Chinese furniture into a contemporary interior is to use it as a statement piece. For example, a large antique Chinese trunk could be used as a coffee table in a minimalist living room. The simplicity of the space would allow the beauty and uniqueness of the trunk to shine through.

Reproduction Chinese Coffee Tables

Chinese-style reproduction furniture is another great option for those who love the look of antique Chinese furniture but want something that's more affordable and easier to find. Reproduction furniture is made using modern techniques and materials but is designed to mimic the look and feel of antique Chinese furniture. Chinese-style reproduction coffee tables often feature traditional designs and carvings, but they come in a range of sizes, shapes and colours to suit any interior.
