This grand cypress bench once provided versatile seating in the courtyard of a Qing-dynasty home. Not only was the sizable bench able to seat many guests during outdoor ceremonies, its imposing form could be used to barricade the home's tall courtyard doors. Softened by a rich patina, the beautifully aged bench bears traces of the original painted surface. With clean lines and simple splayed legs, the bench's angular form feels surprisingly contemporary and fits effortlessly into modern interiors.

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.”
