Chinese antique cabinets are functional and visually pleasing. Their designs range from simple to richly decorated. This means they can match any interior style. The combination of drawers and shelves provides storage convenience and versatility.
In a Chinese carpenter’s mind, cabinets are miniature houses; they must have balanced proportions and built to last for generations. The evolution of designs and styles over the centuries demonstrate this commitment. Some designs are striking with their unadorned elegance highlighting their line and timber grain. Others use rich colours and motifs symbolising good wishes, telling stories from popular folklore.
Chinese antique cabinets vary in size. Some will be a large feature piece in the living room while others are suitable for a small bedroom.
