This solid plank top table, known in colloquial Mandarin as "dubar," is unusual for its simple form and rustic appeal. Unlike the top surface of many Qing-dynasty tables, constructed of a frame with a floating center panel, the dubar surface is made of a single select piece of northern elmwood. Crafted in the early 20th-century in China's Shanxi province, the console table may have served as the altar in a provincial household, laden with offerings to pay respect to their ancestors. With expressive grain and undeniable warmth, this simple console table adds wonderful character to any room.

“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.”
