Rooted in ancient imperial courts and reinvigorated during the Ming dynasty, the emperor chair is also known as an “official’s hat chair” for the shape of the sculpted crest rail that resembles a winged hat. Crafted with dynamic lines and subtle curves, this mid-19th century elmwood chair strikes the perfect balance between simplicity of form and judicious ornamentation. Once taking pride of place in a Qing-dynasty living room and study, the chair has a formal quality that feels timeless, exuding dignity and poise in any setting.

“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.”
