About Oriental Expression

Circular shaped Chinese rosewood 'Moongate' cabinet with 3 drawers and low shelf below. Chinese rosewood furniture from Oriental Expression

Oriental Expression was started in the mid 1980’s by craftsman and teacher Rob McCretton, importing high quality Chinese furniture for supply direct to the public to minimise costs. As a craftsman Rob recognised the high quality of design and craftsmanship used in each piece after commissioning furniture for himself whilst based in Hong Kong. 

After 10 years teaching Rob returned to UK and started Oriental Expression. 

Originally based at Newnham in Cambridge, he moved to the Old Tannery Shop in Pampisford, more recently relocating to the Eastern Counties Leather Estate, approximately 150 metres along the road.

From an unimpressive exterior you enter an Aladdin’s Cave full of Chinese furniture crafted from solid rosewood and ash, together with a selection of Oriental antiques, ornaments and lamps. The Chinese rosewood Furniture comes from selected workshops in China.

Oriental Expression is now a long established business with furniture to view and purchase from stock as well as offering a vast range of alternatives made to order. 

With shipments arriving throughout the year we have a continually changing display.

From clean classic lines to detailed carving or mother of pearl inlays, Oriental furniture offers such a broad range of styles that it lends itself perfectly to both modern and traditional settings. 

Lovers of quality will appreciate the beauty of solid wood, from ash to rosewood with a range of other traditional timbers all worked by the most accomplished craftsmen. 

We cater for both Oriental and Western styles, and will also custom make any item to your own design and style from a choice of hard woods, all for little more than a standard piece of furniture.
