Crafted of northern elmwood in China's Shanxi province, this early 19th-century altar table was once used to display an ancestral shrine in a provincial Confucian household. Incense, candles, and fruits would have covered the narrow table as offerings to the family's ancestors. The table's round legs and gently curving spandrels exemplify Qing-dynasty forms, elegantly constructed with traditional mortise-and-tenon joinery techniques. What gives this simple console table its timeless, rustic appeal is its darkened finish, beautifully aged after centuries of use.

Elizabeth Krueger | Elizabeth Krueger Design

“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.”
