These long red lacquer panels are decorated with turned baluster posts and fanciful carvings of flowering plants and scholars' objects, set within a vertical rectangular frame. Dated to the late 19th century, the panels may have originally been an architectural element or part of a Chinese canopy bed. The central panels are carved with a scrolled collector's shelves stacked with books and vases bearing floral arrangements. The surrounding carvings depict plants symbolizing longevity, including chrysanthemums, plum blossoms, pine trees, and bamboo. Finished with a layer of richly-aged red lacquer, the vertical panels bring bright color to the home as storied wall-mounted sculptures.

“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.”
