New Asian Furniture Retailer has changed ownership in the fall of 2006 and is now offering Asian furniture importers and manufacturers an online market place to feature their products. was purchased from hand made tansu furniture maker Petra by LTDTrading, a privately held internet retail group. LTDTrading specializes in Asian furniture import and sales including Asian Platform Beds, Asian bedding, bedroom furniture and more. changed hands to its new ownership in the fall of 2006 but has been under construction until now. The new site offers visitors an easy to navigate online shopping experience complete with product details, general buying information as well as educational resources about Asian furniture. hopes to become one of the internet’s top selling Asian furniture retailers by providing casual shopper and furniture connoisseur alike a great selection of quality imports at a competitive price.

When we asked owner Benjamin Harvey how his new business has gone until now, he replies with a smile, “so far I’ve been really pleased with the progress of the new website. Our web development team has done an excellent job with the design of the site, but more than anything we are pleased with the quantity of traffic we have received. I am very excited to finalize which suppliers we will be working with and begin adding products to the site.”

The types of products that will be featuring on the site varies from small Asian decorations such as Buddha statues to complete Asian platform bed sets. Most of the larger furniture pieces are made of reclaimed wood and are one of a kind pieces rather than mass produced items. I had a chance to see some of the products that will be featured on the site and was impressed by both the diversity and uniqueness of the products. “We try and select modern Asian furniture pieces that have a distinct ethnic flair, yet will blend well with contemporary American homes” says Harvey. Harvey predicts that his best selling products will be platform beds. Platform beds he says have become increasingly popular with designers and home buyers in recent years and can really make a statement in the bedroom. They are simple, sleek, low to the ground and work well with most types of mattresses including popular memory foam mattress.

When asked when will be open for business Harvey had this to say; “we already have some bedroom furniture products for sale on the site though had originally hoped to be fully operational by spring of 2007. We may still meet that goal but due to the vast selection of Asian furniture imports, we have been taking more time than expected to decide which products to carry. We do expect to be fully operational by the middle of the year at the latest.”

You can visit at or click to view the Asian bedroom furniture products that are ready for sale. But for the larger Asian furniture pieces that I had a chance to preview, shoppers will have to wait just a little bit longer.
