This elmwood farm trough from China's Shanxi province charms with its asymmetrical form and dark wax finish. A common sight throughout rural Qing-dynasty China, a provincial trough such as this would have held grain for livestock and barnyard fowl. The rustic trough showcases the expressive grain and raw texture of Chinese elmwood, deeply weathered by a century of use. With its shallow basin, the trough makes a wonderful tabletop planter, perfect for colorful twinkling candles or orchids and other lush succulents.

Andrea Goldman | Andrea Goldman Design

“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.”
