This elegant 19th-century low elmwood chest is adorned with finely carved floral scrollwork, spanning from the apron to the spandrels and across all seven drawers. In a traditional northern Chinese home, this type of chest would have been placed beside a raised platform called a kang, which was used as a sleeping and living space. Likely used to store dishware and other useful objects, this ornate chest would have been the at center of daily life.

“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.”
