A slide of the dagger post and a pull on the fish-shaped handles reveals three shelves, two drawers, and one hidden compartment, once used to shelter the prized belongings of a Qing-dynasty scholar. Evincing the austere attitude of Ming-dynasty aesthetics, this 19th-century cabinet is minimally accented with rounded molding, a subtly carved apron, and layers of lacquer that reveal themselves in a rich, deep brown.

“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.”
