Atop a layer of lustrous black lacquer, intricately painted floral decoration elevates this minimal square table into a work of art. A leafy trailing vines motif winds across the surface, concealing abstract phoenix and dragon forms and framing a central chrysanthemum blossom, a symbol of autumn and joviality. The table has a simple waisted construction, with straight recessed legs ending in hoof feet and subtle humpback stretchers. Found at the center of social activity, square tables such as this were used on a daily basis for dining, serving tea, or playing games.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
