This burled basket is from a tree in Southern China—each wood burl is completely unique and formed from knobby tree growths that have beautiful swirled grains and contours, and small dark spots that carpenters refer to as “eyes.” For thousands of years, Chinese artists and literati appreciated burls for their spontaneous natural beauty. The well-lived, warmly patinated surface of this basket calls to be touched.

What They're Saying

Andrea Goldman | Andrea Goldman Design

“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.”
