Winding like the Yangtze River, this early 20th-century bench from China's Shanxi province captivates with its asymmetrical form. Tapered legs support a seat carved from a sinuous elmwood branch imbued with graceful movement. Embracing the notion of "wabi sabi," the bench charms with its irregular edges, mottled color, and array of knots, splits, and deep grooves. With a weathered texture and meandering form, this provincial bench exemplifies the raw beauty of the natural world.

“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.”
