This gorgeous late 19th-century apothecary chest was originally used by a Chinese pharmacy to organize and store herbal medicines. A statement piece brilliantly constructed with mortise and tenon joinery, it has thirty drawers, each fitted with two interior compartments. Unlike many apothecary chests that are finished with lacquer and paper drawer labels, this cabinet is left undecorated to show the beautiful grain and warm coloring of its northern elm (yumu) construction.

“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.”
