This 19th-century monumental elmwood daybed from China's Shanxi province features an outward-curving apron with cusped edges and a tightly-woven rattan top. The daybed's abbreviated cabriole legs end in feet bearing auspicious ruyi symbols of prosperity, suggesting the platform is floating on good fortune. Traditionally, a daybed such as this was not only a place to sleep, but also to a pot to drink tea, play a game, or share an intimate moment.

“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.”
