ITEM: Chinese Antique Red Scroll Coffee Table

I don't recall if I ever got around to writing to tell you, that "I entirely LOVE the red scroll table!" It is an incredibly perfect fit, in the spot in my reading room--just as i suspected it would be! (...amazingly modern feeling, but in a classic way) It has sort of a quiet, artsy
edge to it, that feels wonderfully "meditative" in my space!

Love it-Love it-Love it!

Chinese Antique Console Table
I thought you might like to see how we used the Chinese table. I framed an obi (from a kimono) which hangs above it. I love it.
Hope to talk to you soon.

Dear Ruth,
Yeah! The table finally arrived and is just perfect! We couldn't be more pleased and I must say surprised by the weight! I think it will be permanent fixture in the house. Thank you for your promptness in all areas from initial emails about the table to communications on delivery. This was a first for us in purchasing furniture online and it is everything you billed it to be. Many thanks!!

Chinese Antique Sideboard  


Congratulations for all of the updates to your site! I finally have photos to share with you of the sideboard that we purchased this summer. I LOVE IT! We get so many compliments on the piece, and I could not be more pleased with it. We did indeed have to cut a large rectangular hole in the back for our media equipment to fit, but it also helps to ventilate it so it doesn't get too heated with the equipment hidden away. Re-doing our family room was our 10th anniversary gift to each other, and this piece was a wonderful addition to our room. My husband is concerned now with my desire to have a few more of your pieces in other areas of our home!

Thank you again and I hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday season!!

Chinese Sideboard and Thai Art  

Our experience purchasing online from you was a joy.We were hesitant to buy the cabinet and painting online because it's hard to tell what it's really like.Through our emails and phone conversations you were very reassuring that these were exceptional items.They certainly were and we thank you. It was a pleasure working with you on this purchase.
Our best.

Pair of Chinese Antique Armoires  

Dear Ruth,
The beautiful armoires and coffee table arrived July 19th in the afternoon and we left the following day for the mainland. We just got back to Hawaii last night. I wanted to write to you sooner but we were very busy getting
ready for our trip.
Ruth, the pair of armoires are much more beautiful than the photos revealed. They look much, much better than I had expected. We are all so very pleased with them! They are in perfect condition and I can't tell you enough how very beautiful and elegant they look. The coffee table is also very beautiful and also looks better than the photo of the website. It is also in perfect condition and the carving could not be more beautiful.
Thank you so very much for all your help and patience. It is very reassuring to know that I can order anything from your website and be so
surprised to find the items much better than I had imagined.

Chinese Antique Elmwood Sideboard  
The wonderful chest arrived and it is perfect for the spot it was selected
for!!!! I love it!!
I must comment on Wayne, the deliverer. He readjusted his delivery time to
accommodate my schedule. I had a sister visiting from Michigan and needed
to pick her up during the delivery window. Wayne changed his schedule to
fit this time. I really appreciated this "extra touch"
I am busy selecting what goes into it. I will definitely be a repeat buyer!
Enjoy these years with your children, they pass SO quickly!!!!
Regards and thanks,

The sideboard looks FANTASTIC!! It is absolutely the right piece and I am very pleased. I’ll send you a picture. I’m glad I waited for this one.We stopped for dinner on the way home, so it was a bit late. That did not stop my determination to get the piece in the door however!! All the best with your business, and please keep me on your newsletter list. I hope to buy again sometime.

ITEM: Chinese Antique Black Lacquer Sideboard

Good Morning Ruth,

Well I am sitting in my condo looking at my beautiful new sideboard! It looks great in here!!! I will send you a picture of the unit in place when I get the mirror and lamps, so you can get a true feeling. I hope all is well for you and your family.

Thank-You for all that you did for me! I truly was a little afraid to buy something on line from someone I didn’t know! I have NEVER done that before and you made the experience wonderful! I would truly recommend you and your company to others. I appreciate your integrity ! Have a great day!

Chinese Black Decorated Sideboard

I must say, the sideboard is stunning! Even Mr. TV said it's more beautiful
than the photos.
I'm sorry to say I missed the delivery as I was out of town, but my husband
said everything went smoothly and the guys were great.
As soon as we get our set up settled I'll send you a photo, though I'll
probably have to get a fish-eye lens considering the size of TV he wants to
get ;)
Thanks again for your help.

Chinese Antique Black Sideboard


We just saw thesideboard last night for the 1st time and it is gorgeous!
It is in such great condition but still maintains its antique character. It
will make a great addition to our living room! Thank you also for being
kind enough to store it for us until we moved in. I just knew I had to act
quickly before it was gone! ;-)
Thanks again, I continue to check out your site every week for my job also
and will be sure to contact you again in the future when our clients are
looking for asian antiques.

Chinese Antique Sideboard and Altar Table


I’ve attached one of two pictures I would like to submit for posting in the Zaar gallery. The first picture is of a small section of my dining room. I painted the walls using a base coat of yellow and a dry-brush application of sienna and maze glazes over sparsely placed and raised spackle.

I hope you and your family are well. Thanks!

Dear Ruth,
That cute little chest is here and installed. I love it! It makes me even more eager to see the rest. The way the doors are hinged, with a ball of wood in a groove, is fascinating.
