Shanghai Green Antiques is excited to announce that we are taking advantage of the soft opening of our new spectacular showroom gallery to rebrand ourselves as ARTifacts. Our new name better reflects the type of pieces you find in our dazzling collection, including ancient Chinese art objects and artifacts, Ming and Qing Dynasty architectural salvage, and antique furniture.
Our rebrand further reinforces our core goal of saving old and culturally significant pieces from the wrecking balls and wood burning stoves of China,. We feel that this goal can only be achieved on a large scale if the ancient items are viewed through the lens of an artist designer - artistic re-purposing and re-use by modern people in modern ways. Hence the emphasis on residential and commercial interior design uses which you will find in every corner of our showroom.
And what about "Green Antiques"? With only a few exceptions, no trees are chopped down to make any of the items in our collection. Either our wooden pieces are entirely original and made from the wood of trees which were chopped down centuries ago, or the pieces are repaired with old timbers from Qing Dynasty buildings which have been torn down. Either way, we remain committed to our "Green" environmental friendly goals - re-utilizing something old is almost always more environmentally friendly than making something new.
We appreciate the tremendous support of our friends who have made Shanghai Green Antiques the world famous brand it has become, and we will continue to use joint branding for the next several years as we gradually transition from Shanghai Green Antiques to ARTifacts.
ARTifacts GREEN ANTIQUES is China's largest and most spectacular artifacts antiques and ancient arts shop, with a truly amazing 72,000 sq.ft. showroom gallery containing literally tens of thousands of pieces of beautiful and mystical artifacts, antique Chinese furniture, architectural salvage pieces from the Ming and Qing Dynasties, and ancient arts.
