Generations have sat before this sculptural limestone fire screen, protected from sparks and warmed for hours by the heat retained in this thick block of stone. Hand-carved charming imagery and subtle etching, the hundred-year-old stone shows the passage of time in the rounded edges and softened lines of its once keenly chiseled form. On one side of the fire stone shows an ox staring up at the moon, while on the other side is a round teapot, perhaps in reference to the role of tea in welcoming guests to the home.

“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.”
