       The spartan beauty and simplicity of the past is conjured up by antique furniture, arranged in the bright display windows at this place. To the left, as you enter, is a basket filled with small wood-cut window decorations (approx. 30 cm.); each piece is NT$400. Wood pieces designed with intricately-winding curves are evocative shadows of Chinese pavilions. These window pieces are created with a variety of extraordinary, elegant patterns that draw patrons back for an appreciation of the fine details. Circular window decorations made of elm and marked by icicle designs are NT$5,800. There are also extravagant elm hunting chairs, grandiose and conveniently stackable (NT$38,000). Medicine chests designed in the Ming style, with 20 to 30 small drawers, make excellent CD displays and cost NT$9,800. Red shellac boxes are NT$2,200, and faux Ming-style shellac carrying baskets are NT$1,500 to NT$2,500. Tables and chairs of all shapes and sizes ensure that even those with Goldilock's fastidiousness will find the perfect chair, suited to their height, comfort, and individual style. All other items, besides special-sale pieces, begin at 70 percent off. Find antique furniture on the first and second floors; the third and fourth floors display home furnishings for the study, living room and other areas. And, of course, customers may order custom-made furniture designed in antique styles.
