Sotheby's Home - Designer Furniture - Chinese - Carved And Inlaid Cabinet
Not all rosewood furniture is equal. The wood itself is rare, very hard with fine lined grain. It is one of the densest and hardest of woods. Difficult to carve and carved by only experts. This lack of supply and needed expertise makes rosewood more expensive than Elmwood, Rubber wood, MDF with veneer or Pine. You may already know this but for those who may find this product at a lesser price, please be warned that not all furniture is solid rosewood. Elmwood is a softer lumber than rosewood and native to northern China it is a medium density lumber that is denser than Pine.

The forms of Chinese furniture evolved along three distinct lineages which dates back to BC,  based on frame and panel , yoke and rack based on post and rail seen in architecture and bamboo construction techniques. Chinese home furniture evolved independently of Western furniture into many similar forms including chairs, tables, stools, cupboards, cabinets, beds and sofas. Until about the 10th century CE the Chinese sat on mats or low platforms using low tables, in typical Asian style, but then gradually moved to using high tables with chairs.
