Rootwood furniture carried enough prestige and symbolic meaning that Chinese emperor Minghuang (c. 970) was painted for his portrait while sitting in a root chair. Naturally knotted and untamed, rootwood furniture reflected a cultivated taste for nature's peculiar effects and humble associations. This pair of highly collectible gnarled root chairs is joined together with wooden pegs, like a complex puzzle. Their surfaces give them a character only the passage of time can achieve.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. 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.”
