This is just one of the amazing antiques now online and arriving soon in the UK from China. It's an absolutely stunning red lacquer cabinet from Shanxi province in central China, with carvings showing a Chinese good luck symbol.
This Oriental low scroll table is based on the 'lute tables' used by the Chinese when seated on the floor to play musical instruments. It's made from solid elm with a glossy lacquer finish and is in our winter sale at a clearance price of only £395 - that's a discount of 50%! More at http://www.shimu.co.uk/shimu/Sale.html
This low elm table is a lovely and well-priced Chinese antique. Dating from 1860, it would then have been used as a serving table for food and tea in a Chinese home, and wold now make a fab coffee table or TV stand.
We're loving our new range of pure wool rugs. Here are a few snaps of just some of the rugs we have on display here at our showroom in Greengates. You can see the full current range at http://www.shimu.co.uk/shimu/Rugs.html (with more to come soon). Order online or request a sample.
Loads of Oriental furniture and accessories in this lovely big shop in Greengates. I absolutely loved the Chinese antiques and I don't know anywhere else where you could find this type of thing. There is also lots of gorgeous stuff like stone buddhas, bronze horses and smaller accessories like silver jewellery. Great location for a trip out either to buy a piece of furniture or for gift-shopping.
Lovely place with lots of unusual Oriental antiques as well as more modern styles of furniture. There's a lot packed in to the showroom and it really is worth a visit if you're passing (it's just off the main Leeds road near Sainsbury's in Greengates). I looked at an antique chest and the owner was very knowledgable about its history.
