Lily’s living grew as a result of our foreign wholesalers’ admiration for the quality and workmanship at Lily’s Factory. We were asked to create more contemporary furniture, rather than just classical Chinese styles. Our pinnacle achievement is the BLISS collection, which we produce in cooperation with our Spanish partners, and of which we are particularly proud. The BLISS collection is defined by basic colours, simple lines, contrasts of raw wood surfaces, and is 100% made by hand.
Lily started as a small antiques dealer in 1998, but soon set up her own facility for restoration. Besides now having one of the largest stocks of un-restored furniture in Beijing, Lily’s Antiques has a team of highly skilled craftsmen, each with their own specialty in repair and restoration. The value of each precious antique, comes from a combination of its original good condition, and the subtle retouching work undertaken to restore and stabilise each piece, in order to emphasise it’s natural charm and beauty.
Lily’s long-standing reputation has earned her high respect amongst international buyers, as well as amongst a dedicated Chinese following.
Over the past decade, Chinese antiques have risen in value faster than anyone could have predicted. As local Chinese investors have started to purchase top-end pieces, the real treasures have become harder to find. To serve the needs of the passionate antique lover, we created ‘Lily’s Museum Collection’ – a collection gathered by Lily herself over many years, which showcases some of the best Chinese and European antique furniture available in China.
Here, on the top floor of our Gaobeidian showroom, serious investors can find pieces they have dreamed of owning, as well as learn about Chinese furniture and culture. We call it our ‘Private Museum,’ and we welcome all here, to visit and experience the best of our collection.
t Lily’s Factory, quality is our aim. We employ the best carpenters and painters in the industry, and they remain loyal to us because we respect their craftsmanship, and provide excellent working and living conditions. At Lily’s, we are one big family.
As an industry leader, Lily’s Factory was also one of the first factories in Beijing to obtain the FSC label, for using ECO friendly wood. Right next to our factory is a huge wholesale warehouse, where a large number of long-term international customers come to source container-loads of our goods. If you wish to explore traditional Chinese craftsmanship and sample un-restored Chinese antiques, please contact us directly, and join us for one of our factory tours.
