This late 19th-century offering table from Beijing expresses Ming-dynasty tastes with clean lines and a simple silhouette. Minimally decorated, the table features straight legs, double stretchers, and spandrels carved in the form of an auspicious ruyi and outlined by a beaded edge. The table is crafted of northern elm (yumu) and darkened to a rich brown with traces of the original black lacquer finish. Originally used as a home altar for ancestor worship, this long table blends into modern interiors as a console or sofa table.

“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.”
