Chinese Deco furniture is highly sought after by collectors and others who appreciate this niche moment in Chinese furniture design. Carpenters in Shanghai, Canton and Tianjin were exposed to the European Deco furniture imported into China by expatriates doing business there at the time. They emulated the forms in Chinese hardwood, all the while respecting traditional Chinese joinery. This teak pair is one of our favorites. Upholstered in a Holly Hunt wool blend boucle fabric, they feel sophisticated and easy at the same time. They exemplify the qualities that make Art Deco so sought after: simple lines and striking geometric designs with timeless appeal. In the 1930’s China was swept up in the Art Deco movement. Design, architecture, art, and furniture were all influenced by the popular, new style.
