A quiet place for escaping mundane concerns, the scholar’s studio was carefully cultivated to promote intellectual and artistic thought. Likely the centerpiece of such a room, this handsome bookcase features open shelves ideal for storing and displaying books, scrolls, precious antiques, calligraphy brushes, and other writing materials. The bookcase’s light finish highlights the natural grain of elmwood, especially visible in the row of small drawers that divide the piece. Typical of Qing-dynasty furniture, the bookcase has clean lines and a rhythmic quality that fits well into today’s interiors.
