Pop-Up Beijing’s Treasure Trove of Delights: When Hoarding Turns into Art
Stepping into Pop-Up Beijing, it can be overwhelming to the untrained eye with so many things everywhere. At first glance, the space is just overflowing with beautiful wood furniture, plush couches and striking cabinets. While the ceiling is covered with hanging chandeliers and antique lamps, the walls are lined with mirrors, paintings and tall shelves filled top to bottom with ceramics, pots, figurines and vases.
It may seem cluttered or haphazard at first, but there is a method to the madness. You just need to take a step back to focus your shopping eye before you can fully begin to appreciate the beauty and uniqueness of each individual piece on display. In every corner, there are refined, quirky, stylish pieces, accented by vibrant fresh flowers alongside timeless antiques.
I commend what this reviewer wrote on CityWeekend – “From antique furniture and vintage fabrics to modern artwork and fanciful cushions, the collection here lets you break away from living in apartment that was once all-IKEA-all-the-time.” - Review by memworldwide
