Dated to the early 20th-century, these upright display shelves are constructed with lightweight frames, open sides, and low railings enclosing each shelf. The pair's clean lines are accentuated by a rich dark brown finish, lightly faded at the edges from a century of use. Once the centerpiece of a Qing-dynasty scholar’s studio, these open shelves were ideal for displaying stacks of books, scholars' rocks, precious antiques, and other scholarly implements. With streamlined sophistication, the timeless design of these bookcases holds its own in a contemporary office or living room.

“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.”
