During winter in the colder provinces of China, life revolved around the kang, a heated brick platform that household members would sit or recline upon. Placed on top of the kang, low tables provided a convenient surface for dining, drinking tea, or playing games. This 19th-century kang table follows the classic form, featuring a waisted apron, a rectangular floating-panel top, and short legs linked by straight stretchers. Darkened by a weathered finish from decades of use, this table fits in to modern interiors as a low coffee table or display stand.

“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.”
