Step into the magnificent Imperial Palace in Beijing andfeast your eyes on the throne and screen with dragon and phoenix designs. Walk into the Qiao Family GrandCourtyard in Shanxi and caress the rough and simple tables andchairs. Wander around Wu Town, a small town along the lowerreaches of the Yangtze River in Zhejiang, and find king-sizeantique beds with intricately carved patterns. Stroll through theclassical gardens of Suzhou dotted with exquisite furniture. In allthese places you might wonder how the ingenious and delicatefurniture was designed, created, painted, decorated, maintainedand left in its current state.You also might wonder who was the proud owner of thesepieces. Was it an emperor with great talent and bold vision? Wasit a patriotic and unlucky literati, a rich merchant, or a simpleordinary person? You might wonder what kind of life the ownerlived and experiences he went through.Or maybe you are not conscious of anything but prefer tosimply indulge in the details of the furniture of their color,luster, feel, surface, body, leg and foot, shape, outline, line andframework.
