This elegant tabletop chest is a late 19th-century Chinese document box, once used by a businessman or scholar-official to sort his important documents and writing accessories. The box is expertly crafted of huali rosewood, a dense hardwood valued for its color and fine grain. Seamless dovetail joinery patterns the corners and brass drop handles adorn the sides, affixed to cloud-form plates. Each of the long drawers is fitted with two small drop pulls in the form of ripe peaches, emblems of immortality.

“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.”
