Wind Water Gallery’s husband-and-wife team travels to China four times a year to gather country furnishings and accessories from the late Ching Dynasty (mid-1800s–early 1900s) to the Republic Period (1911–1949), filling a 16,000-square-foot gallery with imported antiques valued at more than $1 million. A green home table ($575) and a small carved box ($250) both stand ready to keep small pets off the floor. Carved bone figurines ($198) sit comfortably beside jewelry boxes filled with strings of baroque pearls ($49) and carved jade earrings ($49). Wind Water Gallery also imports cultural art and furniture from a number of other distant lands, including pictures from Tibet, knickknacks from India, and gear from Mongolia and Thailand.
