Abstract: At present, people's demand for furniture products not only stays at the function and structure level, but also gives more and more attention to the cultural connotation. Therefore, infusing more cultural semantics into the product shape is helpful to the creative transformation of furniture products and promotes the expansion of the furniture market and cultural exchange. Most researches in related fields stay on the direct extraction and application of traditional cultural elements, and few research on the aesthetic preference of modeling in a certain style system. At the same time, the past research is more subjective, and lack objective data support and experimental research. Therefore, this study introduced eye movement experiment and scale, combined subjective and objective, and took Shanghai style furniture as the research object to provide more scientific and specific guidance for the research and design of furniture.Firstly, 10 nautical folding three-mirror dressers were collected and selected as the experimental samples; the 10 samples were generalized using Adobe Photoshop to obtain the stimulus materials required for the experiment; secondly, under the theoretical support of the eye-brain hypothesis, 30 subjects were tested and scored according to their subjective preferences using eye-tracking technology; the resulting experimental data were After careful processing, the contrast, purity, and proportion of the 10 dresser samples were calculated using aesthetic formulas; finally, the above three values and the subjective scores of the subjects' preferences were imported into SPSS software and Pearson correlation analysis was used to investigate the correlation between contrast, purity and proportion and preference respectively. It was found that there was no correlation between contrast and preference and between purity, and preference in the experimental samples; the correlation between proportion and preference in the experimental samples was significant and showed a positive trend. The results of this study show that the aesthetic preferences of the public are better served by the excellent proportions of the furniture of the Shanghai-Style. Take the excellent model 7 in the experimental results as the overall framework, and refer to its mirror, countertop, and cabinet proportions for innovation in the design of a freestanding Shanghai style dressing table as the bearer of refinement and tolerance, highlighting the historical heritage of Shanghai.In this study, based on the eye-brain hypothesis, the combination of an eye-movement experiment and subjective scoring questionnaire can screen out the Haber-comb furniture with aesthetic value and in line with the aesthetic preference of the public, which is conducive to cultural inheritance and in turn proves the reliability of the eye-brain hypothesis.
