With its organic form and irregular texture, this provincial split leg stool would have been the ideal seat for a Qing-dynasty scholar. This type of natural formation was prized by Chinese artists as a source of inspiration for painting, poetry, and calligraphy. With its warm patina and antique iron repairs, its likely this stool has been well-used for generations. Today, the gnarled stool is an easy to add rustic charm to a modern space.

“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.”
