When the Art Deco movement reached major Chinese cities like Tianjin and Shanghai, the design aesthetic that emerged was the perfect intersection of European modernism and Ming-dynasty refinement. This oval side table is a product of the era, crafted in the 1930s with a simple silhouette and pleasing, curvilinear form. Crafted of northern elm with a black lacquer finish, the table has one shallow drawer and two narrow doors that open to an interior compartment with one shelf. Reminiscent of provincial cabinets carved out from a solid tree trunk, this Deco cabinet blends into modern interiors as an end table or nightstand.

Additional Dimensions:
Drawer: 10.5"W x 13.5"D x 3" H
Doors: 9"W x 16"D x 11"H

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
