We’re attracted to unusual items with unique stories attached to them. One such piece of furniture is our Butterfly Lover’s Chest that literally tells a story.
The Butterfly Lover’s is the tale of two schoolmates Zhu Yingtai and Liang Shanbo who fall in love and vow to marry. But Zhu’s parents have arranged her marriage, and Liang is so heartbroken he dies. During Zhu’s wedding processional, she passes Liang’s grave and begs for it to open. It does, and Zhu throws herself in. Their spirits turn into butterflies that fly off together, never to be separated again.
