Classical Chinese furniture is most closely associated with pieces made during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, often of the highly prized huanghualiwood. Other important hardwoods used include zitan,jichimuand nanmu. The distinguishing features of this type of furniture include the natural beauty and grain of the wood, elegant proportions, refined mortise-and-tenon joinery and fine detailing such as beaded edges.
 
Works of art for display, daily use and ritual were made in an array of materials such as lacquer, glass, cloisonne, painted enamel, jade and hardstones. The quality of craftsmanship across different media is striking and reached great heights during the eighteenth century.
