Our First 2017 New Inventory Arrival! 0

We are excited to announce our first 2017 new inventory arrival! Everything was hand selected during our recent visit to China in the fall of 2016.

First we are excited to introduce you to our first outdoor accessories collection that includes some outstanding one of kind hand carved stone planters, front door posts, stone stools, and other outdoor accessories.

We also handpicked some beautiful, indoor, traditional blue and white vases and jars and more modern blue/white decorative vases hand painted by an artisan from Jingdezheng: China’s modern day capital of porcelain and ceramic art craft. Other accessories we imported include Chinese screens, antique wood doors, wood screen windows, and Tibetan iron candle holders.

Our new Chinese furniture inventory includes some beautiful, long, classic altar tables from the later Qing Dynasty that have striking open carved side panels, spandrels, and forms. Other altar tables, from the villages of the Northern provinces of China, show their rustic elegance with simple straight line construction and original wood color. All are adorned with original paint and nicely aged patina. These tables, with their hand carved sides and/or fronts, are suited nicely to a formal living room, dining room, entryway or hallway.

We also found a limited number of small cabinets and chests with beautifully hand carved fronts or nicely exposed wood grains. These hand painted, colorful, trunks are perfect as coffee tables or trunk side tables.  We have also added some rustic country furniture to our collection such as benches, stools, and small coffee tables.

We can’t mention every piece of our new inventory in this brief new arrival announcement so please visit our website to see all new furniture and accessory additions: https://www.dyageast.com/collections/new-arrival-furniture https://www.dyageast.com/collections/new-arrival-accessories

Rustic Furniture Adds Layers of Past, Texture, and Rustic Elegance to A Home 0

Incorporating rustic Chinese furniture into your home layers the past among the present. It tells a story– a time when men made their own houses, barns and furniture from native woods fastened by forged iron and countersunk pegs. For centuries Chinese craftsmen meticulously created chairs, tables, armoires and bureaus with hand oiled tools passed down from their fathers. The opposite of mass-produced furniture, it's a marriage of the craftsman and his materials; each board is selected to expose the wood's unique character, grain, and luster. The style recalls homes built of natural objects that blended with the countryside around it: log cabins, lodges, airy lofted breezeways with views of the mountains, any tough place where sturdy furniture was needed to withstand the elements. It's relaxed, informal, distressed by the generations that used it, built with quality in mind.

Rustic furniture can be found anywhere where there's a history of place: a well-worn oak coffee table cozied up to a stone fireplace, a butcher block in your grandmother's kitchen, an antique Arts & Crafts rocking chair on the porch. Although rustic furniture was originally made from whatever wood was most abundant, using recycled and reclaimed materials like old barn wood, railroad ties, hand hewed beams and paneled doors are also quite popular materials. Although rustic furniture is commonly found unvarnished with a hand-rubbed beeswax, natural oil, or clear polyurethane finish, it can brighten any kitchen, bath, living room or bedroom when its patina is a pretty shade of white, blue, gray, yellow, red, or green. Rustic furniture adds visual weight and stability to a room with it's rugged craftsmanship. There is a textural emphasis to this type of furniture and so it pairs well with rich-looking woven natural textiles like wool, animal hides, jute, and braided rag rugs. Metals like antique silver, casted bronze, and pockmarked iron juxtapose its ruggedness. Natural elements from the outdoors like collections of shells, driftwood, or a grouping of botanicals also pair well in a rustic furniture setting.
