The shop is filled with decorative items and lifestyle objects in a range of shapes and sizes - from petite to oversized - with vibrant colors and inspiring graphic patterns. The objects are categorized into three materials: lacquer, cloisonne and ceramics, with prices starting from 48 yuan (US$7.77) for a ceramic tea cup, all the way to 300,000 yuan for an eggplant-shaped cloisonnwe art piece.
