This petite lacquered chest of drawers was originally used in a 19th-century Chinese pharmacy to organize and store herbal medicines. The square-corner cabinet is constructed with ten shallow drawers, each divided into six small interior compartments. Each drawer has a teardrop-shaped pull and several have additional nails and iron repairs. A dark red-brown lacquer finish coats the exterior, richly aged and well-worn from almost two centuries of use.

“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.”
