With its strong lines and upright stature, this imposing piece of furniture was the chair of choice for a 19th-century administrator in northern China. Made of northern elmwood, the chair has an elegant yet minimalist design, using curves to create the back and arms. The sole decorative element is the flying dragon carved in the back slat. We like the way the recent finish in black defines the chair’s exquisite architectural profile.
