This mid-19th century cypress daybed from southern China features simple round legs connected by gentle humpback stretchers. The tightly-woven top surface was hand-woven of reeds in a refined and ancient technique, held in place by a thin layer of lacquer. Traditionally, a daybed such as this was not only a place to sleep, but also a gathering place to sit with others while sharing tea over conversation.
