We are enforcing social distancing guidelines at all times in the showroom, with appropriate signage and markings as a reminder, and will be asking all customers to use the hand sanitizer provided when entering the showroom and to wear a face covering.
If you can't make it to the showroom in person you can of course still order online or over the phone as we are arranging delivery of furniture and home accessories as normal. Please note that for the time being delivery will be to your room of choice if required, but the crew will not be able to offer their usual unpacking service. You will be asked to maintain a distance of at least 2 metres at all times. If you prefer you can also request a contactless delivery. See our Coronavirus information for more details.
Our 3000 square foot showroom is located at Albion Mills, Greengates in West Yorkshire, and provides a light, airy space to show our beautiful range of handcrafted oriental furniture and Chinese antiques. We have most items from our reproduction furniture ranges in stock as well as a large proportion of our current collection of Chinese antiques. If you are planning a visit and there is a particular item you would like to see, please call us in advance and we can make sure it is available for you to view when you arrive. Free parking is available.
