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.

“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.”
