Antique Chinese wardrobes
The design of traditional Chinese wardrobes is different to the type of bedroom wardrobe we’re more familiar with in the West. In China, wardrobes were used to store clothing and textiles folded flat and placed onto shelves, rather than being hung vertically from hanging rails. In addition, many would also feature one or more drawers which would have been used to store smaller items.
Our collection of Chinese antiques includes an ever-changing selection of antique oriental wardrobes; ranging from highly ornate pieces with lacquered finishes, through to charming designs with a more rustic appearance. You’ll notice that our antiques collection often includes traditional wedding cabinets; these beautiful pieces of furniture would have been given to a couple as part of a bride’s dowry and filled with with valuable silk fabrics, jewellery and other gifts. Chinese wedding cabinets are now perfect for use as eye-catching statement pieces in contemporary interiors, whilst their internal shelves and lower drawers make them ideal for practical bedroom storage.
Armoires have also long been a feature of Chinese interiors and like wedding cabinets, would have been used to store folded clothing and textiles. Our antiques collection usually includes a selection of imposing armoires, the designs of which can vary from ornate and highly carved, through to simpler pieces made to showcase the natural beauty of solid wood.
All of our antiques are unique, original and carefully chosen by us for their charm and beauty. If necessary, items are restored before being shipped to the UK. However, restoration is carried out sympathetically, with great care taken to ensure the unique patina of the piece is retained. As all of our antiques are unique, our current selection is dependent on what we have available at the time, so if you have something particular in mind, please get in touch and we’ll endeavour to source it for you.
