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.

Elizabeth Krueger | Elizabeth Krueger Design

“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.”
