Mr. Chen Zengbi, Guide

Guided by Mr. Chen Zengbi, chairman of The Council of Chinese Ming Domestic Furniture and retired professor of The Central Academy of Arts & Design, this field trip will help BIS members to identify various types of wood commonly used in furniture making as well as to differentiate between genuine antique furniture and counterfeit copies. Browsing through warehouses in the Lu Jia Ying and Shi Li He areas, participants will learn to appreciate the style differences that occur in furniture originating from different parts of the country. Finally, one can gain some hands on experiences in finding desirable pieces of furniture in the local market.
