Antique Garden Shanghai
An unique store in the centre of Shanghai that not only offers passionate antiques but also has a special place to have a coffee, to taste an organic cake and have a chat with friends, maybe to talk about antique furniture…
The real antiques are collected from over the world and intend to bring a different ambience into the coffee shop; it feels like we just walked back in time.
Han Yi, the manager, believes that every piece he found somewhere in the world “are worth to share with his customers, for them to enjoy sitting into a great antique chair or drink out of an old antique tea cup”.

Jonas Merian, a Swiss born furniture designer, is the creative mind behind this special and unique shop. The materials used in his pieces are collected at Shanghai antique markets or from destroyed houses of Shanghai Old Town.
Jonas says that “the old look of used things has a better feel and comes with a story.” The most important besides the design, is the fact that the designer can make everything custom made.
