This recessed-leg table from China's Shanxi province dates to the early 19th century and was originally used to display an ancestral shrine in a provincial household. Incense, candles, and fruits would have covered the narrow table as offerings to the family's ancestors. Crafted of northern elm with mortise-and-tenon joinery, the narrow table features a floating-panel top and four round legs linked by straight stretchers. Curvilinear spandrels top each leg, outlined by a beaded edge that flows into the shallow apron.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
