This 19th-century Mongolian storage coffer balances a streamlined silhouette with textured, wabi-sabi materials. Also referred to as a herdsman's chest, the four-door sideboard is expertly crafted of walnut using mortise-and-tenon joinery, without the use of nails or screws. Originally configured to open from the top, the cabinet has been modified with front-facing doors and an interior shelf, with elegant bridle joinery visible at the corners of each door. Beautifully proportioned, the coffer is enveloped in a rich brown lacquer stippled with wear from years of use. Clean-lined and timeless, the coffer is finished with full moon brass lock plates and a smooth patina that calls to be touched.

Toyoharu Kii

b. 1953, Ehime, Japan

A leader of the cross-cultural craft resurgence, Japan-based artist Toyoharu Kii creates mosaics with hand-cut Italian marble and Venetian smalti. Inspired by sumi-e ink painting, Kii’s abstract mosaics are a meditation on pattern and form, relying on the careful placement of tesserae to convey sophisticated concepts. His refined compositions vary in scale from multi-story mural installations to works that fit in the palm of your hand.

Toyoharu Kii is revered as Japan’s leading mosaic artist and teacher. His work has been featured in exhibitions worldwide, including solo exhibitions in the United States, Italy, France and Turkey.

“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.”
