China’s top mall furniture store will close its doors for refurbishments to cut down on its carbon footprint.
The Beijing Oriental Furniture Center, which has been in operation for nearly a century, will be closed on Feb. 2, according to state media.
The center, which sells over 100,000 pieces of furniture, was designed by renowned furniture designer Guoxian Shi and features an elaborate outdoor terrace with an ornate ceiling.
It was designed in collaboration with the designer Liu Wei and will be rebranded as the China Oriental Furnace Center, according the Beijing News.
In a statement, the center said the refurbishment is planned for March 1.
China has been criticized for its overconsumption of natural resources and the air pollution caused by its factories.
