This 19th century "Cliff on a Mountain" Chinese viewing stone is known as a scholars' rock. These types of rocks were prized by Chinese scholars as vital sources of inspiration for painting, poetry and calligraphy. The unique formation of the natural limestone—bringing to mind a majestic cliff atop a mountain—inspired its name. Each shift of light or turn of the stone encourages contemplation. A custom-carved mount was designed simply to complement the stone's varied and complex dimension.

Elizabeth Krueger | Elizabeth Krueger Design

“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.”
