Finely crafted of northern elmwood (yumu), this elegant writing desk once stood centerpiece in the office of a well-to-do professional of the late Qing-dynasty. Occasionally known as a doctor's desk, the table is a 19th-century iteration of the three-part pedestal table, comprised of two rectangular pedestals connected with a removable square tabletop. Each pedestal base is has a square corner design fitted with two drawers and a slatted floor shelf. The three-part desk showcases the natural beauty of its materials, minimally decorated with inset paneled sides, etched brass hardware, and subtle hoofed feet.

“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.”
