Popular throughout the Qing dynasty, display pedestals such as this were used to display precious objects, serve tea, or elevate burning incense. This square example dates to the mid-19th century and features a lower shelf enclosed on all sides by decorative quadrilobe cutouts. The table has a basic frame with straight corner legs, simple spandrels, and a single shallow drawer, perfect for stowing odds and ends. A black lacquer finish cloaks the exterior, beautifully aged with gentle wear and a rich patina. With its clean lined form and charming design, this square table blends easily into modern interiors as a side table or nightstand.

“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.”
