With clean lines and balanced proportions, these 19th-century tall back chairs exemplify the refined forms of Ming-dynasty furniture design. The chairs are designed after the 'southern official's hat chair,' defined by high rectangular backs, rounded corners, and no protruding crest rail. However, this pair deviates from tradition with the omission of arm railings and two curved back spindles in lieu of a back yoke. The back stiles curve in the opposite direction as the back yoke, creating an elegant interplay of lines. Subtle metal fittings reinforce the top corners and contrast the richly patinated brown lacquer finish.

Andrea Goldman | Andrea Goldman Design

“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.”
