Ming-style furniture, has a long history of development, is one of the most outstanding and prominent among the old-fashioned furniture in China. With the continuous evolution of people's living habits, cultural content, and philosophical concepts, it has formed a unique style of furniture under the basic elements of home furnishings. Chinese Taoist philosophy is rich in multiple concepts such as morality, life, aesthetics, and nature. And Ming-style furniture has absorbed more or less the content of Chinese Taoist philosophy in the development process.
