This 19th-century garden stool was carefully carved from a single block of limestone by artisans in the Shanxi region of China. Drum-form stools such as this were frequently used in gardens and outdoor pavilions where upper class scholars read, wrote, discussed antiques and art and, in general, developed their inner sensibilities. This example is subtly carved with round circles at top and bottom, mimicking nail heads that would have secured a hide top on an actual drum. There is variegated rust color from iron content in the stone.

“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.”
