We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way! After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

Chinese Furniture

Today’s Furniture – Chinese Folklore
In the present, traditional Chinese furniture is generally arranged in symmetrical suites or sets. However, these are supplemented with more flexible arrangements to prevent the room from having an atmosphere that is too sedate and reserved. Paintings or examples of calligraphy might be hung on the wall to create a more likely environment.

Ceramic, enamel, or other little objects might be placed n an antique display cabinet for added elegance. Any of these can add splashes of color and liveliness to the room. These delicate arrangement set off the heavy furniture to give a rich composite effect.

Qing furniture – Chinese Folklore
Qing furniture – Chinese FolkloreAt the beginning of the Qing Dynasty, furniture followed Ming patterns and styles.

During the reign of Emperors Kangxi, Yongzheng, and Qianlong, Qing furniture showed its own uniqueness with the absorption of western art. It was larger in size with grandeur and pageantry.

Engraving was a popular and important means of furniture decoration. The subjects range from auspicious character patterns, to geometric patterns and scenes in nature with animals, mountains and waters, flowers, and grass. Color painting was widely used.

Scholars’ participation substantially influenced the development of furniture.

The ancient hierarchical tradition required scholars to pursues spiritual goals and to not get involved in craftsmanship. However, Ming Dynasty scholars differentiated from their counterparts in previous dynasties not by bizarre dress, but by their interest in furniture design, which helped it throw off rigidity and develop cultural meaning. In addition, references to furniture by scholars leave us valuable information.

Ming furniture features durable and precious woods such as red sandalwood and scented rose wood, which emit pleasant aromas, naturally adding as touch of taste and grace. This meaningful simplicity was not achieved at the cost of comfort. Scientific protection for body was reflected in details such as curves, lines, height, and size.

Background of Ming Furniture – Chinese Folklore
Ming furniture dates from the end of the Ming Dynasty, a traditional time in Chinese history. During the beginning and the middle of the Ming Dynasty, austerity was a government edict. Later, through the economy gained substantial growth, people had to remain low-keyed about their wealth to avoid high taxes.

With the issuance of a policy to lower taxes, people finally found a solution to enjoy the life better. The vogue went beyond a rich and decent life; luxury and novelty became the fashion. Under such as social background, people, rich or poor, were free to wear bright and magnificent clothes and to build large houses; consequently, luxurious furniture was needed.
