East and West.




This store has furniture to die for. The pieces appear to be of Chinese origin and are not necessarily reproductions and are stocked by several stores. Very very appealing and pricey.

Yet it makes me uneasy. How and where were these items obtained? Someone elses heritage shipped out to us? And any new timbers have to be spared.

I understand every one of your feelings. Admiration for the craftmanship and delight at the result, worry about the way these pieces were made...
