Unusual to Chinese furniture, a Greek key-like design, crisply rendered in walnut, outlines the doors of this exceptional cabinet. The motif, however rare, emphasizes symmetry, an important Chinese concept both symbolically and aesthetically. Capturing the simple and elegant spirit of Ming dynasty design, the early 19th-century cabinet emanates its uncomplicated character inside and out. Functioning as a scholar’s cabinet, it was likely commissioned for a specific room in a well-designed courtyard 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.”
