Crafted of fine rosewood, this early 20th-century footed headrest was once used by an upper-class woman in lieu of a pillow. Gently curving to support her head and neck at rest, the headrest also helped to preserve her intricate hairstyle. This particular headrest is fitted with a petite drawer, used to store precious keepsakes while one slept. Since the drawer only opens when the headrest is upright on its side, the owner could rest easy knowing her valuables were safe.

“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.”
