This pair of low 19th century Chinese chests features finely rendered paintings of flowers and birds amidst a garden landscape over a rich hand-applied black lacquer finish. It is likely the chests would have originally been used to store clothing, incense or other personal items in a woman's sleeping quarters. They are connected to low platforms whose aprons are painted with dragons, representing strength and pearls for wisdom that protected the cabinets and their contents from moisture.

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.”
