Viking Home, located in the Sanlitun area of Chaoyang district, offers both genuine antique furniture as well as reproductions. The storefront is quaint, but there is quite a selection inside.
There are a lot of items to select from: screens, desks, cabinets, armoires, Buddha sculptures, etc. The management describes that all the collections are purchased from countryside of Shanxi, Fujian, Anhui and other provinces.
Prices start at RMB 1000 for an antique cabinet, and rise upward to RMB 30, 000 for sandalwood Dragon Bed. In general, price varies a great deal based on history, condition, and design.
