However, with the development of this type of design style, its dull and inhuman abuses is gradually exposed, its single design approach has become the shackles of designers. Thus, decline of modernism, postmodernism, and gradually replaced the modern design style. Postmodern back toward tradition, derived from the traditional sign language, and then break it, refactoring, new forms of humor, playful attitude. As Hegel said: "the only nation, is the world of" nationalization of highly, highly emotional, will be part of a future design trends. China now appears to be in a postmodern era, China dress hot, antique hot in recent years, as well as white-collar affection for the Ming-style furniture, are people returning to the traditional Chinese culture. The furniture market in recent years, there is a design group, although their styles are different, but more or less precipitation of Chinese culture, from this point on, you can classify as its called "Chineseness," furniture.
First, different "Chineseness,"
On the question of inheriting the tradition, facing the future, many designers have their own understanding. Not only Chinese designers, even many foreign designers through his work, expressing a unique understanding of traditional Chinese culture. Tradition is the objective, but the traditional understanding from person to person. Different designers with different forms of language, churning out a whole bunch of "Chineseness," furniture.

How to inherit the tradition, but also on how to create the future, different researchers are very far apart. Researchers have furniture from the inheritance of Chinese traditional culture in the Ming-style furniture, with the "fuzzy image, space and time" to design modern furniture, furniture from Chinese-specific "God and potential". Some researchers is a completely different way, they extract the Ming-style furniture in the best of form elements, reassembled in order to meet the modern lifestyle and aesthetic practices.
Due to the different starting point for designers, design work also tends to show a completely different style.

Additional cushions on the surface, increased softness and breathability, makes using more comfortable. Chair leg style coarse-fine, solemn vigorous momentum of Ming-style armchair, but adds a lively interest, convey the atmosphere of modern life.
"Chineseness" furniture in the family, should not be in the form of a single, but should show "blossom" look.
