This basket from Northern China is made of burled wood, which has been appreciated by Chinese artists, poets and calligraphers for its unusual grains and forms for thousands of years. Like scholars' rocks, burled objects—with spontaneous, wild beauty—inspire creativity. This basket form burl has a wonderful sculptural shape and a well-worn, warmly patinated surface that 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.”
