With clean lines and balanced proportions, these 19th-century tall back chairs exemplify the refined forms of Ming-dynasty furniture design. The chairs are designed after the 'southern official's hat chair,' defined by high rectangular backs, rounded corners, and no protruding crest rail. However, this pair deviates from tradition with the omission of arm railings and two curved back spindles in lieu of a back yoke. The back stiles curve in the opposite direction as the back yoke, creating an elegant interplay of lines. Subtle metal fittings reinforce the top corners and contrast the richly patinated brown lacquer finish.

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.”
