In a traditional northern Chinese home, a chest like this would have been placed beside a raised platform called a kang, which was used as a sleeping and living area. The cabinet would have kept essential items close at hand in intimate spaces. The black lacquer finish has worn beautifully to create a smooth, yet visually textured surface. The broad top surface and straight legs contrast the delicately carved spandrels and apron for a balanced silhouette. In the modern home, the cabinet pairs beautifully with low furniture as a nightstand or end table.

“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.”
