Background

Over the years working in Beijing, my father has accumulated a vast collection of Chinese classical furniture pieces and objects made of a nearly extinct, precious tropical hardwood called zitan. His love for Chinese classical furniture, especially furniture made of "zitan", which was used exclusively by the imperial court in ancient China, has prompted him to sell a portion of his collection and use the proceeds to fund a non-profit organization in the San Francisco bay area, a small Chinese classical furniture museum. The intent of this museum is to preserve a part of China's cultural heritage by exhibiting authentic Chinese classical furniture made with precious tropical hardwoods such as zitan, while raising environmental awareness about the zitan forests of Southeast Asia that have been lost to over-harvesting.
