During winter in the colder provinces of China, life revolved around the kang, a heated brick platform that household members would sit or recline upon. Low tables placed atop the kang provided a convenient surface for dining, drinking tea, or playing games.

Crafted of beautiful huali rosewood, this low kang table follows the classic form, featuring a waisted apron, a rectangular floating-panel top, and short corner legs ending in cloud-form feet. A beaded edge runs along the apron and down each leg, terminating in a spiral at the knee. The apron is finely carved with a motif of bats amongst clouds, symbolizing luck and good fortune.

“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.”
