Beautifully carved qilin—mythical creatures symbolizing virtue and perfection—appear among the delicate vines on the back splats of these folding chairs. Pairs of similarly designed chairs are featured in Beijing's palace museum. This form is considered by many to be one of the most elegant of all chairs, combining utility with grandeur. The chairs are carved of feathery-grained chicken wing wood, jichimu, prized and beloved by Chinese furniture makers, and now extremely rare.

“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.”
