This 19th century monumental table is from Yùnchéng in Shanxi Province. It features eight carved dragons, which have traditionally been a symbol of power and good luck. The table's impressive top is crafted from a large-scale solid elmwood timber. It is likely this table lived much of its life against the back wall of a large hall or temple, where it served as a platform for censers, offerings, vases and candle holders.

“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.”
