It's very unusual to find an early 20th century cabinet made of bamboo like this one. Each of the chest's panels is created with miniature cracked ice lattice, or "binglei," a popular 17th century Chinese decorative motif admired for its asymmetry. Creating furniture from bamboo was a traditional Chinese art form in itself, requiring carpenters with very specific skills, talents, and training.

“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.”
