These long red lacquer panels are decorated with turned baluster posts and fanciful carvings of flowering plants and scholars' objects, set within a vertical rectangular frame. Dated to the late 19th century, the panels may have originally been an architectural element or part of a Chinese canopy bed. The central panels are carved with a scrolled collector's shelves stacked with books and vases bearing floral arrangements. The surrounding carvings depict plants symbolizing longevity, including chrysanthemums, plum blossoms, pine trees, and bamboo. Finished with a layer of richly-aged red lacquer, the vertical panels bring bright color to the home as storied wall-mounted sculptures.

Elizabeth Krueger | Elizabeth Krueger Design

“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.”
