Winding like the Yangtze River, this early 20th-century bench from China's Shanxi province captivates with its asymmetrical form. Tapered legs support a seat carved from a sinuous elmwood branch imbued with graceful movement. Embracing the notion of "wabi sabi," the bench charms with its irregular edges, mottled color, and array of knots, splits, and deep grooves. With a weathered texture and meandering form, this provincial bench exemplifies the raw beauty of the natural world.

“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.”
