Each Chinese antique in Orchid’s Antiques collection starts its journey in the remote workshops of rural Southern China. Selected by founders Jemma Page and Mimmi Waugh on their regular visits, each piece is restored to its former glory, of the Kang or Qing dynasty, using traditional restoration methods. Wood is repaired, hardware is fitted and the lacquer or hand-painted decoration is restored to cabinets, consoles and sideboards. Upon arrival in the UK each restored antique is photographed and displayed on Orchid’s website and in Orchid’s London and Hampshire showrooms.
Orchid is leading supplier of authentic restored Chinese antiques and exclusive collections of elm furniture and walnut furniture, including wooden beds, four poster beds, chests of drawers, mirrors, bookcases, sideboards, dining tables, dining chairs and cabinets, trunks and accessories including lamps and candle holders.
