Marked by its grand proportions and restrained, Ming-dynasty style, this stately table was either an altar for ancestor worship or a painting table used for viewing painted scrolls or works of calligraphy. The waisted table's bold lines, limited ornamentation, and straight legs braced by double stretchers follow timeless principles of Chinese architectural design and construction techniques. Accentuated by a dark lacquer finish, the table has a clean, sophisticated form that demonstrates the enduring popularity of minimalist design.

“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.”
