Humble House Gallery

Humble House is Australia’s leading gallery of genuine Chinese antiques. Their sumptuous showroom is only a stone’s throw from the Dunstone Design showroom and the collection of pieces they hold is simply stunning. As a woodworker, I simply marvel at the quality and clarity of the craftsmanship. As a designer, I am intrigued by the Chinese approach to form, message (Chinese furniture often depicts a story or saying) and function. Many of our clients also have pieces from Humble House. Tell Roger and Weilian that Evan sent you.  www.humblehouse.com.au
