Transcending Time, Place and Trends
Orchid offers a tantalising mix of old and new pieces, from genuine Chinese antiques to authentic reproductions. You’ll undoubtedly find something that speaks to you, whether you dream of a Chinese wedding cabinet in your living room or a lacquered trunk that boosts your bedroom’s style and storage.
Our founder, Mimmi, sources traditional 19th and 20th century furniture from various provinces across China. These are then lovingly restored by artisans we’ve trusted since Orchid’s conception. The artisans use traditional techniques passed down through generations to breathe new life into time-worn pieces.
From refurbishing the structure to applying the last brushstroke of lacquer, every stage of the restoration process is handled with the utmost respect for the piece. Mimmi will often suggest a bold, unexpected colour palette, to keep the design evolving and introduce you to exciting style concepts.
As for our reproduction pieces, these are expertly handcrafted and hand-finished to our designs. Mimmi takes an ethical and hands-on approach, visiting our artisan factories and ensuring only reclaimed wood and sustainable materials are used.
