Seamlessly constructed and lacquered black, this pair of spectacular Ming-dynasty compound cabinets provided the perfect blank canvas for painted scenes of figures and horses in a garden landscape. Still vividly colored after centuries of use, the lavish decorations cover the cabinets from top to bottom, complemented by brass moon and dagger hardware. Used to store garments, the compound cabinet stacks a small storage chest for hats or out of-season clothes on a regular-sized cabinet that stowed everyday garments and bedding.

“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.”
