Gazing up at this bed canopy, the married couple who commissioned this painting would have a constant reminder of good fortune. Delicately painted, the wood canopy brings to life symbols of prosperity and good fortune: the phoenixes representing joy and peace and the peonies royalty and virtue. Surrounded by complementary paintings, the bed created an enclosure, a style popular in southern China at the turn of the century.

Andrea Goldman | Andrea Goldman Design

“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.”
