Our oriental furniture collection takes its influence from traditional Chinese furniture, with each piece of reclaimed Pine or solid Ash being lacquered seven times to present the unmistakable classic black lacquered furniture of the orient. Our oriental furniture range is designed so each piece of black lacquered furniture perfectly complements the others. This means that whatever item you choose from our collection of traditional Chinese furniture influenced tables, chairs, chests of drawers or bed, we offer a wide range of other black lacquered furniture pieces to match, to help you to achieve an oriental air carried throughout any room or home.
You can see our stunning oriental furniture collection in detail by viewing more images and close ups of the stressed edging that helps to define this classic Chinese furniture style. As with traditional Chinese furniture, our oriental furniture range gets its black antiqued finish from several layers of lacquer. This process results in black lacquered furniture with a robust and gleaming finish, making our oriental furniture perfect for any home, able to stand up to the rigours of normal household use.
Many of our Chinese furniture inspired pieces include brass handles along with wooden edging detail, enabling you to choose how contemporary or traditionally styled you wish your black lacquered furniture to be. Our modern slant on the classic Chinese furniture look means that our oriental furniture range can fit perfectly into any home, whatever your existing décor and style.
Our black lacquered furniture range includes more traditional items such as our low coffee table Beijing, through to our oriental TV table, which combines a modern function with traditional Chinese furniture inspired elegance.
Our much-anticipated range of sustainable furniture will soon be available. Eco Furniture is another name for environmentally sustainable furniture, being crafted from raw materials such as bamboo or woods, which are reclaimed, recycled or re-forested. Our eco friendly furniture bamboo collection aims to have minimal impact on the environment with the bamboo growing and replenishing itself very fast and without the need for pesticides, providing a truly sustainable furniture option.
Eco furniture doesn't have to compromise on design and aesthetics, and our sustainable furniture collection is produced with both functionality and style firmly in mind. Eco furniture combines strength and the natural solidity of high quality materials like bamboo with aesthetically and ergonomically designed pieces, which makes sustainable furniture a beautiful, yet simple and green solution.
