This bench was originally created over a century ago to be used by weavers in China’s Anhui Province. It's height is ideally suited for sitting near a loom. The gradation of finish on the solid Northern Elm top indicates where a weaver would have sat. The legs sprawl beautifully, forming a silhouette on each end that recalls the Chinese character for the number eight. The braces between the legs were designed to keep feet up and off chilly floors.

Elizabeth Krueger | Elizabeth Krueger Design

“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.”
