This petite chest of drawers is an example of the multi-functional boxes used tabletop in lieu of larger cabinets during the Qing dynasty. Such boxes were used to store cosmetics, incense, documents, and other accessories. Dated to the early 20th century, this ten-drawer chest was likely used in the office of a scholar-official or businessman to organize flat documents and important papers. Recently refinished to a dark brown, the box has a rustic, wabi-sabi charm and would be a perfect ​storage solution for a home office or art studio.

“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.”
