Four types of wood are showcased in this pair of exquisitely crafted Korean chests that date from around 1870. United with a coffered design, the cabinets combine paulownia, favored for its warp-resistant properties; persimmon, for its streaks of orange and black; pear for its warm color; and elm root for its gnarled, evocative patterns. Gently curved hoof feet and the sparkle of brass braces, hinges and lock enliven the cabinet’s largely square profile. Most surprising about the design are the relatively small doors that open into a large open interior. Traditional Korean homeowners typically stacked their clothes in such depths, allowing out of season garments as well as valuables to lie at the bottom.

“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.”
