Beautiful Chinese storage chests for your home
Offering the perfect combination of oriental elegance and practical storage, our range of Chinese storage chests includes both antique and newly-made items. Ideal for hiding unsightly clutter, wooden chests can be used as a versatile storage for everything from books and DVDs, through to spare bedding, blankets and throws.
Antique Chinese chests and trunks
At Shimu we are proud to be able to offer a wide range of original antique items, sourced by us directly from China. Our ever-changing range includes beautiful trunks and chests which are ideal for storage or to use as a unique coffee table or side table.
Our antique items are carefully restored by Chinese craftsmen before they are shipped to the UK. Restoration is carried out with great care and respect to ensure that the original charm and unique patina of each piece isn’t lost.
As antique items are completely unique, our range is continuously changed and updated. At any one time it will usually include a range of stunning pieces, from traditional document chests and opera trunks, through to blanket chests and travel chests. If our range doesn’t include exactly what you’re looking for, please don’t hesitate to get in touch and we’ll aim to source what you have in mind.
Newly made Chinese storage chests
Alongside our range of antique pieces, we also offer a wide range of handcrafted, brand new items. Made in China from reclaimed hardwood and using traditional joinery skills and techniques, our newly made items are designed to offer the elegance of oriental design, combined with modern functionality.
You’ll find that our range of new Chinese trunks and chests includes pieces made from light elm which is famed for its rich patina, along with lacquered items available in luxurious coloured finishes including red, black and cream. These elegant pieces would look stunning at the end of a bed or for useful extra storage space in any of your living spaces.
