This sculptural form is actually a 19th century pipe made from a special type of bamboo that bulges between growth lines like a “Buddha's belly”. When it was made, smoking out of bamboo pipes was a popular pastime in China that some physicians also prescribed as a remedy for malaria, colds, and other disorders.

“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.”
