This early 20th century Chinese Deco chair from Shanghai has an unusual back paneled with a marble insert. Chinese furniture inset with stones was considered to be pleasantly cool during the hot summer months, particularly in Southern climates like Shanghai. Designs like this were influenced by the Art Deco movement in the West that was introduced to Shanghai and several other Chinese cities during the economic boom of the 1920s and 1930s.

“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.”
