Intricately crafted in the 19th century, this walnut kang chest showcases three doors inset with camphor panels, reminiscent of cartouche paintings. Often selected for its active grain and hardy nature, camphor wood was a popular choice during the Qing Dynasty for making wardrobes or storage chests such as this one. It's low profile made it perfect for storage alongside a traditional kang platform in intimate spaces. The powerful backplated hardware is a hallmark of the port city of Tianjin, a favorite haunt of ours.

“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.”
