These 19th-century square stools from Shanxi province are elegantly crafted in the classical Chinese style with simple lines and balanced proportions. This form of square stool, or fang deng, was a versatile seating option used throughout a traditional courtyard home. Expertly crafted of northern elm (yumu) with mortise-and-tenon joinery, the waisted stools feature lacquered rattan tops (reinforced by wooden panel), elegant humpback stretchers, and straight corner legs ending in hoofed feet. A lustrous dark lacquer finish coats the wooden frames, now gently worn along the edges from years of use.

Deaccessioned from the MacLean Collection of Asian Art.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
