The Dogon people of Mali lived a vertical life. With homes set into cliff faces and orchards to harvest, tree ladders were integral tools of daily life. Adding depth and texture, a pattern of well-worn steps darkens the wood, balanced by the asymmetry of the ladder's forked top. Hand-carved from single tree trunks, the practical design of this ladder lives on as a spirited, sculptural object.

“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.”
