The profile of this simple and elegant recessed leg table resembles the Chinese character for the number one written as a single horizontal stroke. Made of jumu, or southern elm wood, it features masterful mortise-and-tenon joinery. Jumu is treasured in its native southern China for its density and fine grain. A table of this form may have originally been used for reading scrolls, making offerings or simply as a place in the early 19th century Chinese home on which a vase with flowers or other decorative objects were displayed.

“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.”
