Each front panel of this 19th-century coffer depicts a flower signifying one of the four seasons, a group of blossoms celebrated for centuries in Chinese art and culture. Traditionally, this lacquered pine chest opened from the top to accommodate the general storage needs of a Qing-dynasty household. Thanks to the efforts of our skilled carpenters, the chest now also opens with doors converted from the original painted front panels. Over the past century, the painted flowers have taken on a delicate and ephemeral quality, contrasting nicely with the linear frame of the chest.

“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.”
