This early 20th-century terracotta garden stool was created in Pingyao, an ancient, respected city in China's Shanxi province. With a history dating as far back as c. 800 B.C., Pingyao is widely known for its well-preserved Ming- and Qing-dynasty architecture. This garden stool keeps with the city's practice of honoring traditional forms with its simple drum-form shape. Ringing both its top and bottom, a pattern of boss-head nails imitates those used to stretch a skin on an actual drum, and two eternal coin cutouts perforate the sides, symbols of prosperity. Traditionally used as a place to rest one’s feet, a stool like is perfect as a garden seat or a small side table indoors or out.

“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.”
