Traditional Japanese furniture includes simple forms of cabinets, shelves, tables, and screens. To go with Japan's post and lintel construction used in traditional Japanese architecture, furniture is boxy, emphasizing vertical and horizontal lines. Traditional Japanese furniture can be simple and unadorned or beautifully painted with lacquer. The best works of Japanese lacquered furniture are regarded as major pieces of art.
Note: "Japanese Furniture" relates to Tategu
