A prime example of Qing-dynasty furniture design, this 19th-century table from China's Shanxi province is beautifully proportioned and combines practical considerations with aesthetic principles. Its top is carved from a solid piece of walnut timber, supported by wide legs with inset panels. The side panels contain intricate carvings of a stoic deer, a traditional symbol of longevity. A table with such a grand scale would have originally been placed against the back wall of a large hall or temple where it would have served as a platform for incense burners, candles and offerings.

“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.”
