Intricately crafted in the 19th century, this walnut kang chest showcases three doors inset with camphor panels, reminiscent of cartouche paintings. Often selected for its active grain and hardy nature, camphor wood was a popular choice during the Qing dynasty for making wardrobes or storage chests such as this one. Its low profile made it perfect for storage alongside a traditional kang platform in intimate spaces. The powerful backplated hardware is a hallmark of the port city of Tianjin, a favorite haunt of ours.

“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.”
