This bench was originally created over a century ago to be used by weavers in China’s Anhui Province. It's height is ideally suited for sitting near a loom. The gradation of finish on the solid Northern Elm top indicates where a weaver would have sat. The legs sprawl beautifully, forming a silhouette on each end that recalls the Chinese character for the number eight. The braces between the legs were designed to keep feet up and off chilly floors.

“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.”
