Tibetan antique furniture expert Chris Buckley's renowned Beijing shop, Torana House, now
has a sister in Shanghai: Torana Gallery (339-15 Chang Le St.; 86-21/5404-7787;
www.toranahouse.com), a showroom-like
space filled with treasures from the isolated plateau. Along with carpets and scroll paintings,
Buckley's favorite finds include museum-quality chests and cabinetry painted with intricate
dragons and gilded flowers. For a preview, you can pick up Buckley's recently released book,
Tibetan Furniture (Floating World Editions, $60), which devotes more than 200 illustrated
pages to Tibetan culture, art, and religion.
