More portable than chairs, stools were a versatile seating option for Qing-dynasty scholars, nobles, and peasants alike. The balanced proportions of this tapered stool from China's Shanxi province show us how masterfully traditional carpenters married form and function. The stool features a rectangular seat supported by four splayed legs linked with double side stretchers and straight floor stretchers. Gently weathered from years of use, the stool has an unfinished surface that showcases the raw texture of the wood, marked with traces of the original red-brown painted finish.

Seat: 13.5"W x 7"D
Leg Splay: 10.5"W

“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.”
