It's very unusual to find an early 20th century cabinet made of bamboo like this one. Each of the chest's panels is created with miniature cracked ice lattice, or "binglei," a popular 17th century Chinese decorative motif admired for its asymmetry. Creating furniture from bamboo was a traditional Chinese art form in itself, requiring carpenters with very specific skills, talents, and training.

“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.”
