The name “street” is a bit misleading, as this is really an enclave of warehouses and showrooms stocked with some proper antiques, imitation Ming- and Qing-dynasty style furniture, and more contemporary Chinoiserie. Getting out here is easy enough by taking the metro line 1 extension to Gaobeidian stop. If what you buy won’t fit in a taxi, it’s simple to have things delivered to your hotel or even shipped home. Every conceivable piece of furniture and decor is available here, whether you fancy an opium bed or a handsome Chippendale-style chair. And on the off chance what you’re envisioning can’t be found, it can be custom made.
