The owners of this charming, provincial coffer may have used it as altar tables for offerings to revered ancestors. It may also have been used as a storage chest for clothes and personal possessions.

“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.”
