This square center table dates to the mid-19th century and wonderfully exemplifies Qing-dynasty furniture design. Found at the center of social activity, Chinese square tables were used on a daily basis for eating meals, serving tea, or playing games.

The table has a waisted apron with square corner legs ending in hoof feet and linked by straight stretchers. The interior corners where the legs meet the apron are carved with unusual rounded cutouts, a detail that softens the otherwise angular design.

The solid square top is cut from a single burl wood specimen, patterned with swirling wood grain that catches the light beautifully. Burl wood furniture such as this was given pride of place in the scholars' studio and appreciated as a source of beauty and creative inspiration.

“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.”
