Chinese and oriental furniture and art. Antique & contemporary.
What They Say
Qing (pronounced Ching) is the creation of Anne-Marie Nixey, a former teacher from London and Mao Ping Yang, whom she met in China in 1999. After working for three years in Japan, Anne-Marie came back to England to study an MA in Japanese, only to find herself at the end of it going to work for a college in Beijing, China. It was there that Anne-Marie and Mao Ping met and started thinking about how best to showcase the Orient, letting people share the crafts and artistic pieces to come out of modern day China from real makers and designers.
In December 2007 Qing was opened in the historic Old Town of Margate, selling items from contemporary Chinese furniture, with our unique distressed style, and contemporary art to more traditional items and antiques. We have sourced good, quality pieces from designers that we know and trust. Offering items, which are used as part of everyday life, from places and people that we are familiar with. We pride ourselves on knowing our products and are passionate about the goods we sell. We are delighted to extend our shop onto the internet but still retain the personal service that has made Qing so popular.
