This pair of early 20th-century shelves owes its minimal design to the simplified lines and austere aesthetic of Ming-dynasty furniture. Likely centerpieces in the studio of a Qing-dynasty scholar, the open display shelves would have showcased books, scrolls, decorative vases, and precious antiques. Enhanced by a crazed lacquer finish, the clean lines of these bookcases work seamlessly into contemporary interiors as an elegant storage solution.
