Made in the 1920s to satisfy the worldwide hunger for all things Art Deco, this collection of rosewood chairs from Shanghai combine the streamlined style of the era with hints of a Chinese aesthetic. The beautiful rosewood frames uphold tradition with bamboo-like modeling and seamless curves, while the contemporary curved back cushions and heathered wool upholstery bring the chairs into the modern age. Four of the chair backs are in the shape of chrysanthemums, symbols of perpetuity, four resemble clovers, and the others mix wonderfully, unique in their contoured frames. In the twenty years that we have been collecting, this is the only time we have encountered such a large group of Shanghai Deco chairs. We recovered them all in a felted wool performance upholstery.

“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.”
