At Shimu we take great pride in offering our customers the simple, elegant design of original antique and Chinese style furniture. Our classical furniture range is a collection of superb quality, newly made pieces, based on the clean, pure styles found in China’s Ming Dynasty. We also offer an exclusive and ever-changing collection of original antique Chinese furniture, carefully selected from the very finest pieces available, before being restored by skilled craftsmen to return them to their unique beauty and lustre.
Chinese classical furniture
We offer one of the largest ranges of Chinese style furniture UK wide, with a collection of enchanting designs, perfect for contemporary and traditional interiors. Our newly made items are hand made by highly skilled craftsmen in our workshop in Shandong province. The craftsmen we work with are proud to use traditional construction techniques as much as they can, covering everything from the selection of wood and cutting, through to joinery, lacquering and finishing. As such, each piece is made to an incredibly high standard and offers a timeless addition to your home.
You will find that the majority of our Chinese classical furniture designs are originals from the Ming period. We’re sure you’ll agree that thanks to the timeless simplicity of these pieces, they look equally at home in even the most modern of interiors. Although other pieces have more contemporary slant to allow for greater compatibility with modern living, they still hold true to the traditions and spirit of Ming-style furniture.
Antique Chinese Furniture
For many years we have worked closely with suppliers throughout China to source the very finest antique pieces from across China’s varied regions. Every piece is carefully selected by us and is chosen for the beauty, functionality and form it could offer a modern home. Before being shipped to the UK, each item is carefully restored by expert craftsmen who are skilled in using techniques to bring a new lease of life to an old item of furniture, whilst retaining the unique patina which has formed over many decades.
Our range of antiques is constantly changing as we source new pieces. If we don’t have exactly what you’re looking for, please get in touch as we are also able to source individual pieces on request.
