This unusual display table is formed from the spectacular, gnarled roots of a Chinese cypress tree (baimu). The table dates to the late-Qing dynasty, an era in which an elite class of artists and literati cultivated a taste for nature's unpredictable organic forms. Like a scholar's rock, the table most likely lived in an artist's studio to inspire creativity with its spontaneous, wild beauty. Finished with a flat top, the twisted root form is as much a functional table as it is a work of sculpture.

“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.”
