The world of Chinese furniture, despite the huge volume of supplies around the world, is shrouded in many myths and misconceptions. Even the luxury segment has not escaped prejudice and reproaches for all sorts of sins. In fact, Chinese furniture production is now experiencing its own Renaissance. But to see for ourselves, let's first debunk the most famous myths, and at the same time look at the photos from our showrooms in Foshan.

Myth 1: All Chinese furniture is of poor quality

Reality: In fact, this statement has no basis. The Chinese furniture industry is a giant sector, with both budget factories and high-tech manufacturers producing premium furniture. The latter pay special attention to the quality of materials, fittings and assembly, as well as design and functionality.

Myth 2: Chinese manufacturers save on materials

Reality: There are unscrupulous manufacturers on any market, but this does not speak badly of the entire industry. Our company takes a very responsible approach to choosing factories for cooperation. We work only with those who prioritize impeccable quality, reliability and exceptional performance. Our manufacturers have a large arsenal of materials for any type of interior: from various solid woods and sintered stone to precious metals and tempered glass.

Myth 3: Furniture from China is not environmentally friendly

Reality: In China, as in the rest of the world, there are strict environmental standards. All serious factories strictly follow them, using certified materials and technologies that are safe for humans and the environment. Therefore, you should not be afraid to buy Chinese furniture if you have children, or you yourself are sensitive to various allergens.

Myth 4: Low level of technical equipment

Reality: Chinese furniture factories today are equipped with the latest technology. This allows them to produce furniture of the highest quality, not inferior to European counterparts. And the focus on the needs of the modern buyer and the introduction of innovative technologies allow you to create furniture that meets all the requirements of practicality and comfort.

Myth 5: Small variety of models and assortment

Reality: Chinese factories offer a huge selection of furniture for every taste. From classics to modern, from minimalism to art deco - you will always find what you need. In addition, our company Globus offers the possibility of customizing furniture so that your design ideas are implemented as accurately as possible.

Myth 6: China only produces replicas

Reality: Yes, in China there is a production of copies of famous brands (and it is worth noting, at a very high level), but this is far from all. Many factories develop their own unique designs that are not inferior in aesthetics to exclusive boutiques and ultra-fashionable showrooms.

Myth 7: Furniture tour is unnecessary and expensive

Reality: With the right approach, a furniture tour can be very beneficial, both financially and in terms of time and effort. In just 3-5 days, you will be able to completely select all the necessary furniture, fittings and accessories; you will be able to see the production by your own and even get discounts from factories. So for a major renovation, this is a very worthwhile solution.

Chinese furniture has long ceased to be a story about low quality and poor production, today it is technology and high guarantees. Choosing Globus, you get the best in the Chinese furniture market, as well as premium service and personal support throughout the entire purchase process.
