This 19th-century storage coffer is expertly crafted of northern elm (yumu) using traditional mortise-and-tenon joinery methods. The square-corner cabinet is built with two sets of doors that open to a large interior fitted with four drawers and a single shelf. The coffer is finished with a thin layer of red-brown lacquer and accented with full moon brass lock plates and matching square hinges. The clean-lined cabinet has minimal ornamentation, decorated only by geometric scrollwork carvings on the apron. Gently faded from years of use, this four door coffer adds rich texture to modern interiors as a sideboard or credenza.

What They're Saying

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.”
