The Dogon people of Mali lived a vertical life. With homes set into cliff faces and orchards to harvest, tree ladders were integral tools of daily life. A pattern of well-worn steps darkens the wood, adding depth and texture, balanced by the asymmetry of the ladder's forked top. Hand-carved from single tree trunks, the practical design of this ladder lives on as a spirited, sculptural object.

“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.”
