Asian Furniture

Many people are attracted to Asian furniture because of its exotic look and feel. Chairs and armoires of wicker grass or intricately carved wood can easily be incorporated into your home. Both antique and modern Asian furniture displays an emphasis on aesthetics. Modern Asian artists often design furniture as well.

Asian furniture is different than Western furniture in its detailing and overall design. Asian furniture commonly includes images of Buddha, tribal masks, tapestries, and dragon and garden themed carvings.

Popular styles of Asian furniture come from Thailand, Japan and China. Each region and culture of Asia shows its influence in its furniture with Chinese furniture being the most popular.
