4 Living pride themselves in their ability to offer the furniture, style and type of wood to suit any room or desired atmosphere. Traditionally, Chinese furniture has always been part of a lifestyle as well as just having aesthetic value. It is part of Chinese tradition for furniture to have a personal touch and uniqueness which cannot be found as commonly in the western world.
The “Personal Service” the 4 Living team are proud to offer remains a theme throughout the collection, as all of the black and white oriental Lacquer pieces are hand painted in China. The tradition of hand painting furniture remains an important part of designing and decorating a home to this very day.

4 Living believe attention to detail, and in high quality standards, is what separates them from others. The only way to ensure consistent quality is to have each piece of Chinese furniture individually lacquered. As a result, this means each individual knot or kink in the reclaimed pine can be painted properly as opposed to a less detailed spray.
The golden lacquer distressed edging, a contemporary take on a traditional style, is an extremely stylish feature on all of the 4 Living lacquered furniture pieces. The detail of the distressing can only be achieved when given specific individual attention. The uniqueness and individuality of every piece ensures that all of the Chinese furniture pieces 4 Living provide has a personal touch.
The use of reclaimed pine in the 4Living white and black Chinese lacquer collections guarantees that every piece will stand the test of time. As well as being physically solid and resilient, the simple yet contemporary Oriental style lines ensure a timeless design.
Items in the Oriental lacquer collection include a console table, chest of 5 or 8 drawers, side table, 3 drawer nightstand, coffee table, and ball leg table as well as an elegant selection of beds and dining tables.
The style of furniture in the hand painted Oriental lacquer collection is particularly malleable in that it can be mixed and matched to create a contemporary Oriental feel, or it can be complimented by a more contemporary piece to create and equally stylish atmosphere.
An excellent example of a complimentary piece is the Ivory leather chairs (available both as carver or armless and with natural or black legs) which work wonderfully with the black or white lacquer dining tables to create a stylish and contemporary dining set.
The lacquer pieces which 4 Living offer, although incredibly stylish in their own right, can be used as part of an existing style and not stick out and ruin the feel of a relaxing or atmospheric room. The timeless design and soft distressing ensures that any of the lacquered pieces will fit seamlessly into any environment.
Hand painted furniture, such as our black lacquer Oriental beds, are a popular choice when looking for the personal touch in a room for relaxation such as a bedroom. Why not add a feature wall with authentic hand painted Chinese wallpaper or stencils? A popular complimentary piece to many of 4 Living’s pieces, this contemporary style can really add character without costing the earth.
The range of stylish glass table lamps which 4 Living offer are the perfect addition to the contemporary modern style of the oriental lacquer collection. As the lacquer comes in either black or ‘off-white’, sometimes an injection of colour is needed to enhance the life of a room. Ranging from very simple in design to slightly more abstract, these lamps are beautiful additions to any room.
