This basket has been decades in the making. It is formed from a natural knobby tree growth ( or burl) which takes years and years to develop, and is appreciated in China for its swirled grain. The gnarled form of this basket brings to mind ancient knobby trees that symbolize wisdom in Chinese art.

What They're Saying

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.”
