This 19th-century monumental elmwood daybed from China's Shanxi province features an outward-curving apron with cusped edges and a tightly-woven rattan top. The daybed's abbreviated cabriole legs end in feet bearing auspicious ruyi symbols of prosperity, suggesting the platform is floating on good fortune. Traditionally, a daybed such as this was not only a place to sleep, but also to a pot to drink tea, play a game, or share an intimate moment.
