After the demise of the Ming Dynasty, the Manchus established the Qing regime, and the furniture of the Forbidden City was severely damaged. The Qing court overhauled the palace, built royal gardens, summer resorts, and Yuanmingyuan. On the other hand, the pursuit of Ronghua's rich interior furnishings has led to a significant increase in the demand for furniture in the early Qing Dynasty. During the Kangxi period, it was purchased from the Suzhou area along the old Ming Dynasty. After Yongzheng was in power, the emerging Cantonese-style furniture was favored by the rulers, replacing the status of Soviet-style furniture as the master of the court furniture. Therefore, Beijing-made furniture can be divided into three phases: early, middle and late.
Beijing-based furniture is generally based on the furniture made by the Qing Dynasty. Due to the superb craftsmanship of Guangzhou craftsmen, and the unique work of wood in the woodwork, all of them are filled by Guangzhou artisans. The furniture made of it has a strong Cantonese style. Over time, it forms a small feature of Beijing-based furniture. . In the ordinary woodwork of the founding office, many artisans are recruited by the Jiangnan area, and their work tends to be Soviet. The difference is that the furniture made by the Qing Dynasty Office is larger than that used in the Jiangnan area, and there is no adulteration.
After the middle of the Qing Dynasty, with the development of social economy and the improvement of craftsmanship, coupled with the psychological influence of the ruling class, Beijingâ€™s court furniture began to pursue the majestic and heavy art style in the styling. A variety of processes are inclusive. Decorative features: Qianlong's favorite ancient enamel pattern
From the perspective of the ornamentation, Jingzuo Furniture is good at absorbing materials from the bronzes, jade articles and Han Dynasty stone carving art collected by the palace. It is widely used in table cases, chairs and cabinets.
In addition, the Huanghuali jade-shaped stool is an example. The stool is made of yellow pear wood. The waist of the stool below the stool is engraved with swirling beads, and the drums and legs are carved. The image of the imitation jade is carved at the intersection of the teeth and the legs. It is a popular decorative pattern in the furniture of the middle of the Qing Dynasty. It is widely seen in the thrones, beds, cases, chairs and screens of Beijing's court furniture.
