About

A Kang bed is primarily served as a bed placed in the living quarters were many Chinese smoked their opium pipe, especially in Southern China. Therefore this type of bed is also known as an opium bed or opium table. Typical for a Kang bed is the heavy inward bend legs. This bed has a solid Jumu (Elm) top with a beautiful grain that sets it apart from the more common bamboo inlaid tops. The table has been used for the last few decades as a large coffee table and it has a great patina.
