F U R N I T U R E

FaFa specializes in fine Asian furniture.

The role furniture has played in the evolution of humankind is continually discussed and explored. Furniture ‘furnishes’ civilizations with numerous attributes including elevating humankind off the ground so we could turn our attention to more refined thoughts and pursuits.

Collectors admire traditional Chinese furniture for its refined design, quality craftsmanship, fine proportion, human scale, and energetic qualities. FaFa’s authentic pieces embody the essence of this classic tradition. These extraordinary pieces have traveled through up to 400 years of time and half way around the world to FaFa. They come with messages for whomever will listen.

Robin Gross, FaFa owner, travels to China to hand select each piece under the guidance and tutelage of Mr. Curtis Evarts, former curator of the Museum of Chinese Classical Furniture in Renaissance, California. His guidance results in the selection of FaFa’s superior pieces.

Other pieces are available. Call or email to inquire.

“Dynastic China was a country of containment.
The cabinets are a metaphor for the great and small walls of China.
Cabinets appear to have been rare until the chair-level mode of living became prevalent.
Perhaps some early cabinet-makers simply modified a familiar box form and elevated it on a table,
only later to have it develop into the high standing cabinet.”

“Just when and under what circumstances chairs were introduced into
China are questions by no means clearly answered as yet…”


Laurence Sickman (1906-1988)
Director, Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art

“The so-called altar table is among the most formal of Chinese furniture pieces.
The name is misleading though.
Pictorial depictions indicate they were usually side tables;
a surface for treasures and gods.
These tables have more to do with human contemplation than human activity.”


Sarah Handler
Former curator Renaissance Museum of Classical Chinese Furniture and well published author
