* The Western concept of a wardrobe did not exist in Ming Dynasty China, as the Chinese would never hang clothes vertically inside a cupboard. Instead clothes were laid flat inside a chest or cabinet, or hung on wooden racks. Cabinets were also used in the study to store books and writing implements, and in the kitchen for food and cooking utensils
