One might easily confuse this pair of 19th century Chinese chairs as a variation of the English ladderback chair. Created without nails or screws, they exemplify the masterful art of Chinese mortise and tenon joinery. The elegant geometry of the back splat is unusual for Chinese chairs of this era. We are particularly keen on the way the chairs' original black lacquer has aged so gracefully.

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.”
