This long, narrow bench exemplifies rustic style with its simple design and wonderfully aged surface. Crafted by a Qing-dynasty artisan in China's Shanxi province, the bench would have been used as versatile seating along a hútòng, the meandering walkway linking traditional courtyard homes. The lengthy plank-top surface rests upon simple splayed legs linked by straight stretcher bars. Embracing the notion of “wabi-sabi,” the bench charms with its irregular surface, mottled color, and fascinating array of knots, splits, and nail holes that reveal a century of loving use.

“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.”
