Chinese Antique Furniture

Antique Chinese furniture has a multitude of defining factors, when combined, make it easy to spot. Both soft wood and hard wood are commonly used, along with a heavy layer of lacquer and the occasional jewel feature. A classic material to look out for is bamboo, which is more common in vintage Chinese furniture but can still be seen, since it's such a prominent material in China.
