This pair of 19th-century square corner benches blend the clean lines of Ming-dynasty design with a Qing-dynasty flair for the decorative. Each bench is constructed using traditional joinery with a floating panel top and straight square legs ending in scroll-form feet. Decorative oblong cutouts form the aprons, trimmed with a finely beaded edge. The spandrels are carved with archaistic dragons on the sides and delicate plum blossoms on the fronts, symbols of winter and longevity. Recently refinished to a dark brown, we love these benches as everyday seating in modern interiors.

“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.”
