Greenery stones are named for the naturally occurring patterns suggestive of trees, grass and other plantlike forms that result from the stone’s conglomerate mix of jadeite, moss agate, serpentine, among other minerals. Found in China’s Liaoning province, the stones, also known as meditation stones, were displayed indoors and appreciated by Chinese scholars and artists from as early as the Yuan (1279–1368) dynasty. Connoisseurs seek out stones with unusual strokes and sweeps, subtle imagery, or forceful motifs that evoke the grandeur of nature or suggest dreamlike states. Not unlike modern Western abstract art, each stone is open to interpretation and can be appreciated for the beauty of its form, color and texture. An intricately carved wooden mount complements the stone’s smooth appearance and evocative patterning.

“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.”
