These refined Qing-dynasty compound cabinets command their surroundings with grand scale and fine materials. Constructed of camphor with traditional joinery, the tall cabinets are comprised of two separate, stacked storage compartments. The upper compartment was traditionally used for hats or out of season clothes while the lower cabinet stored bedding and everyday garments.

The elegant cabinets boast a minimal design that highlights the inherent beauty of the rare materials. The doors are faced with gorgeous cuts of burl wood, each with swirling grain patterns and shimmering golden color. Simple full moon brass hinges and lock plates accent the fronts with a metallic sheen, perfectly punctuating the warmth and fine texture of camphor.

Deaccessioned from the MacLean Collection of Asian Art.

Some fading due to sun exposure. Some restoration to cabinet back and sides.

“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.”
