The showroom of Banmoo is where you can find some peace and quiet. The original structure is well preserved and a serene Oriental atmosphere pervades the space where Banmoo furniture and accessories are displayed in different living spaces. The Shanghai-based furniture brand was started by Lu Yongzhong with the intention of working solely with wood. The founder and chief designer of Banmoo is perhaps one of the brightest new stars in Chinese furniture design. He has carved out his reputation not by drawing on formal training but by relying on his own sense of aesthetics and composition, as well as a curiosity about art and design. He has strong faith in simple elegance and it shows in the design of his furniture range and lifestyle products. From a "Rolling stone" cardholder and "Fountain" music box to big pieces like a "Shanghai 1930's" triple-seat sofa and "Boat" low table, creativity abounds. The price starts from 200 yuan (US$31.4) for small design products to over 130,000 yuan for big furniture pieces.
