This pair of early 20th-century shelves owes its minimal design to the simplified lines and austere aesthetic of Ming-dynasty furniture. Likely centerpieces in the studio of a Qing-dynasty scholar, the open display shelves would have showcased books, scrolls, decorative vases, and precious antiques. Enhanced by a crazed lacquer finish, the clean lines of these bookcases work seamlessly into contemporary interiors as an elegant storage solution.

“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.”
