This 18th-century finely woven trunk was originally used to safely store painted scrolls. A skilled artisan painstakingly wove thin-as-hair reeds to cover each of the side panels, protected and reinforced by original brass corner mounts. The top maintains its original black lacquer and the inside is lined in a veneer of aromatic camphor wood, which was used similarly to the way cedar is used to line a closet, to keep contents fresh.

Elizabeth Krueger | Elizabeth Krueger Design

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
