Orchid's founder, Mimmi Brink, travels regularly to many areas of China. These hands-on visits enable total control on product design and development, as well as the opportunity to find exciting new designs as well as sourcing antiques. Colours, shapes and decoration encountered on these travels continue to inspire new and successful additions to Orchid’s collections.

Particular attention is paid to quality as well as detail; below centre is a batch of best-selling drum stools destined for Orchid having been thoroughly examined.

Regular visits to China include detailed checking of construction, in the far right photo, an elm desk is being examined prior to its lacquering.
