This low drum references lacquered Qing dynasty drums created by artisans over two centuries ago. Drum-form objects were traditionally used in courtyard homes, gardens and outdoor pavilions where scholars read, wrote, discussed antiques and art and, in general, developed their inner sensibilities. In Buddhist history, drums served as bridges for heavenly communication and were integral parts of spiritual life. This drum boasts a beautiful faux shagreen exterior hand-lacquered in red. Wonderful as a side table or stool.

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.”
