Tansu

Japanese Furniture

Ishii Collection carries a comprehensive range of Japanese furniture focusing on antique Tansu from Edo to early Showa period. Each of antique furniture shows its time and area of production as well as its functionality and changes of design being influenced significantly by the culture and history of Japan.
Even a single piece of wood, metal fitting, lacquer or composition of the antique furniture has its own uniqueness, which provides the pleasure of identifying when and where it came from.
We value the originality of each piece and blend it well in modern life. You may be puzzled what to look out for if you are not yet familiar with the Japanese antique furniture.
Do not hesitate to contact us for any inquiries. We will be happy to help you.
