The forms of Chinese furniture evolved along three distinct lineages which dates back to BC,  based on frame and panelyoke and rack based on post and rail seen in architecture and bamboo construction techniques. Chinese home furniture evolved independently of Western furniture into many similar forms including chairs, tables, stools, cupboards, cabinets, beds and sofas. Until about the 10th century CE the Chinese sat on mats or low platforms using low tables, in typical Asian style, but then gradually moved to using high tables with chairs.

All you need to sit down! Chairs had been introduced in Ancient China by Nestorian missionaries in the 7th century, but only became populair during the Song dynasty — AD. Before, the common people were seated on woven siting mats on the floor. Classical Chinese furniture; including chairs and benches, were always made by connecting wooden pieces and woodworking joints, instead of being constructed with glue or metal pins.

Classical Chinese furniture generally refers to a wide variety of pieces made during the Ming and Qing dynasties, from the end of the 14th century through to the beginning of the 20th century. It includes tables, cabinets, chairs, stools and bedframes, as well as other furnishings used in domestic settings. Materials, condition, age and provenance are the greatest determining factors of value.
Determining how much restoration should be done creates a dilemma or even controversy amongst Chinese antique furniture collectors. As with any antique furniture, the most valuable pieces are those in un-restored condition with the fewest blemishes. These pieces are available but hard to find and, as expected, expensive. Most Chinese antique furniture has gone through a rough time, first due to the Cultural Revolution when much of the furniture were carted off to giant warehouses owned by the government, where they sat for the better part of a decade.
