Chinese Traditional Mahogany Furniture

[ From: Maggie Cheung | Published: 2007-11-01 Views: 3023 | Booked times: 55 ]

Mahogany Furniture has been popular in China's wealthier families since the Ming Dynasty. Today, it serves as both a symbol of social status as well as a link to the traditional Chinese culture.

 

Located on the north 4th Ring, Yundian offers Shanghai-made mahogany furniture with traditional Chinese designs. As I approached the shop, the furnitures on display really caught my eyes.

 

A shop assistant introduced me their range of mahogany furniture. They had about 11 kinds of mahogany products, including Ming Dynasty style, Golden Dragon Style, and even western style. I found a 2 meters tall Pier Glass especially interesting. According to the shop assistant, it is made of Hualimu mahogany, or Dalbergia fusca, and designed in the Ming dynasty style (RMB 8600). The main portion of this Pier Glass was a rectangle mirror, with a two-layer cabinet on the bottom. A similar Pier Glass, with a carved dragon design, had a price tag of RMB 7600.

 

The best quality furniture at the store priced around RMB 100,000, and most items went for more than RMB 5000. They offer free delivery in Beijing. You can get a 10% discount on some items, so be sure to ask. The shop assistant can speak a little English.
