She says the best way for a collector to enjoy classic furniture is to live with it, but the reason an object is included in the Mu Qu Ju collection is not simply based on whether it is fit for daily use.

She says by sharing her collection at the upcoming exhibition, she can show more people the beauty of classic Chinese furniture. With every piece on show people can feel the joy that the furniture brought its owners.

More importantly, she hopes that more researchers will study Ming furniture in the future.

"My collection is still expanding. And so will the knowledge of mime and people. When Wang came to Hong Kong in the early 1990s to see my collection, he said he had not seen many of the pieces before."

Meanwhile, The Best of the Best: The MQJ Collection of Ming Furniture, a book cataloging each item in the collection, will be launched at the exhibition.
