This 19th-century storage coffer is expertly crafted of northern elm (yumu) using traditional mortise-and-tenon joinery methods. The square-corner cabinet is built with two sets of doors that open to a large interior fitted with four drawers and a single shelf. The coffer is finished with a thin layer of red-brown lacquer and accented with full moon brass lock plates and matching square hinges. The clean-lined cabinet has minimal ornamentation, decorated only by geometric scrollwork carvings on the apron. Gently faded from years of use, this four door coffer adds rich texture to modern interiors as a sideboard or credenza.

“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.”
