In traditional Chinese homes, slender, long tables such as this one are used to hold musical instruments, flowers, or vases. Often referred to as altar tables, this narrow table form is also used as a domestic altar for familial ancestor worship. This lengthy altar table was constructed of northern elmwood (yumu) in China's Shanxi province over 150 years ago. The expansive table top is finished with whimsical everted ends and a decorative apron carved with a geometric meander and abstract dragon forms.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
