A century and a half ago this elm wood table probably sat in the home of a Qing Dynasty family, used as their ancestral altar. The clean lines would have complimented the classic Chinese architecture of the home, but the elegant simplicity makes this table timeless. It was made in China’s Shanxi province by an artisan who was a master of his craft, as shown by the everted ends, tapered legs, and lacquered finish.

“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.”
