According to the regulations, the norms can be applied to Tibetan-style furniture, such as Tibetan beds, Tibetan cabinets and tea tables used by Tibetans.

Compared with other types of furniture, Tibetan furniture is mostly engraved with patterns as dragons, weird animals, leaves or bamboo and painted in colors. Most are made of solid lumber or boards.
