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.

Elizabeth Krueger | Elizabeth Krueger 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.”
