This early 20th century Chinese Deco chair from Shanghai has an unusual back paneled with a marble insert. Chinese furniture inset with stones was considered to be pleasantly cool during the hot summer months, particularly in Southern climates like Shanghai. Designs like this were influenced by the Art Deco movement in the West that was introduced to Shanghai and several other Chinese cities during the economic boom of the 1920s and 1930s.

Elizabeth Krueger | Elizabeth Krueger Design

“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.”
