Created over 400 years ago, this low table from the late Ming/early Qing dynasty was carved by hand from a single block of limestone. The table has aprons carved with interlocking rings, symbols of eternity, and beaded “incense stick” legs, which imparts a rhythmic lightness to the stone's dense texture. The limestone has oxidized with age and gained a beautiful patina. In a classic Chinese garden, stone furniture such as this was treated more as an architectural element than simple pieces of furniture. This is a rare and excellent example of the traditional art form.

“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.”
