This 19th-century low bench from China's Shanxi province beautifully exemplifies the art of Chinese furniture making - strong sweeping lines, dramatically flared legs, and finely carved cloud spandrels. It is one of the only benches we have encountered with legs that flare out with subtly curved ends. Low benches such as this were most commonly used by musicians playing before an admiring audience seated on the floor. Cloaked in an aged lacquer finish, the bench is a gorgeous way to add rich texture and form to an entryway or living room.

“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.”
