During winter in the colder provinces of China, life revolved around the kang, a heated brick platform that household members would sit or recline upon. Low tables placed atop the kang provided a convenient surface for dining, drinking tea, or playing games.

Crafted of beautiful huali rosewood, this low kang table follows the classic form, featuring a waisted apron, a rectangular floating-panel top, and short corner legs ending in cloud-form feet. A beaded edge runs along the apron and down each leg, terminating in a spiral at the knee. The apron is finely carved with a motif of bats amongst clouds, symbolizing luck and good fortune.

“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.”
