Made of Chinese northern elmwood (yumu), this smooth block of wood was once used by a well-to-do woman as a headrest. The soft curve and height of the block not only supported her head and neck at rest, it also helped to preserve her intricate hairstyle. The headrest is shaped to resemble a low waisted kang table and simply carved with a graphic scrollwork design. Rustic and conversation-sparking, the headrest displays well on a bookcase, desk or side table.

“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.”
