This 19th-century chest, hailing out of northern China, started its life as a storage trunk with a solid lacquered front. Artisans, skilled in traditional Chinese carpentry and lacquer finishes, have reconfigured the trunk into a two-door chest, brushing by hand additional coats of lacquer to achieve a variegated red with colored undertones from its past.

“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.”
