A prime example of Qing-dynasty furniture design, this 19th-century table from China's Shanxi province is beautifully proportioned and combines practical considerations with aesthetic principles. Its top is carved from a solid piece of walnut timber, supported by wide legs with inset panels. The side panels contain intricate carvings of a stoic deer, a traditional symbol of longevity. A table with such a grand scale would have originally been placed against the back wall of a large hall or temple where it would have served as a platform for incense burners, candles and offerings.

“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.”
