An elegant example of the clean lines of Qing-dynasty furniture, this table from Hebei province celebrates the traditional wine table form with design that is simple and refined. Crafted of northern elm (yumu) using time-honored woodworking techniques, the table has a floating-panel top and four round legs linked by giant's arm braces.

Each leg is carved in the shape of a melon or gourd, symbols of prosperity and perpetuity. This scalloped shape is echoed in the ridged apron and braces, a reference to older traditions of bent bamboo furniture. These subtle decorative elements add design intrigue to the minimalist form, made especially striking by a crackled dark lacquer finish.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
