Antique Chinese sideboards for sale at Vinterior

Chinese furniture is very distinct and different from the kind of pieces that we may be used to in the U.K. and Europe – both in terms of material, colour and finish. This makes identifying a Chinese sideboard relatively easy. You don’t need a Master’s degree in furniture design to understand the typical features of Chinese sideboards.These items are often made from rosewoods or redwoods. These woods are given their name because of their marron tones. Hardwoods like these are also strong and durable which allows these sideboards to last a long time. In making cabinetry or tables, Chinese furniture makers traditionally finish the wood with a lacquer. This lacquered finish adds protection to the wood and makes it shine.Chinese sideboards may also be decorated with extravagant and stunning designs. This is done through detailed carvings or with intricate paintwork. Sometimes, they will be block painted in black or dark emerald greens. Other Chinese sideboards will be left in their natural reddish colour and be complemented with complicated patterns or paintings of dragons, landscapes or foliage. When the sideboard is left in its natural red colour these patterns and images are usually painted in gold colours to provide a contrast and stand out.
