When the Art Deco movement reached major Chinese cities like Tianjin and Shanghai, the design aesthetic that emerged was the perfect intersection of European modernism and Ming-dynasty refinement. This oval stool is a product of the era, crafted in turn-of-the-century Shanghai with simple geometries and supple, flowing lines. Minimally decorated to highlight the natural beauty of its blackwood (hongmu) construction, the stool features four legs ending in rounded hoofed feet and curved humpback stretchers. A beautiful example of Shanghai Deco design, this stool owes its timeless look to rich materials and simple forms.

From the collection of Frances and Gary Comer.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
