Tibet . Mongolia . Japan . China . Vietnam
Welcome to Chapels on Whatley
The mission of the team at Chapels is to deliver a tranquil shopping environment for antique furniture, art, artifacts, and homewares from Tibet, Mongolia, Japan, China and Vietnam. An environment of “CALM” where customers can indulge their senses and, take away with them a little of the eastern culture that embraces a balance in life and see’s the home as a place of harmony and a sanctuary.
True to the Chapels philosophy of delivering unique items to compliment any home and bring the superstitions, spirituality and luxury from the East. We also deliver the lure of a particular type of treasure which could bestow splendour to any interior.
Deliveries constantly arrive at Chapels on Whatley in Perth Australia, all items hand picked and sourced directly from trips throughout Tibet, Mongolia, Japan, China and Vietnam, to find cabinets, writing bureau, mirror frames, dressing tables, console tables, stands, and artifacts.
The distinctively shaped and decorated desks, screens, cupboards and chairs feature richly lacquered surfaces, elegant curves and elaborate latticework – all exquisitely crafted from precious woods.
The mysterious symbolism and exotic imagery gives the works mystic connotations. Oriental furniture is often regarded as enchanted objects that add a soul, depth and a personality to any room.
Throughout Asian history, furniture has served a decorative, mystic and artistic function. Details play a central role in eastern furniture design, whether aspects such as hinges, handles and corner mounts, or the springy comfort of cane work, they were planned into the overall aesthetic of the designs.
