Marked by its grand proportions and restrained, Ming-dynasty style, this stately table was either an altar for ancestor worship or a painting table used for viewing painted scrolls or works of calligraphy. The waisted table's bold lines, limited ornamentation, and straight legs braced by double stretchers follow timeless principles of Chinese architectural design and construction techniques. Accentuated by a dark lacquer finish, the table has a clean, sophisticated form that demonstrates the enduring popularity of minimalist design.

What They're Saying

Andrea Goldman | Andrea Goldman Design

“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.”
