Seamlessly constructed and lacquered black, this pair of spectacular Ming-dynasty compound cabinets provided the perfect blank canvas for painted scenes of figures and horses in a garden landscape. Still vividly colored after centuries of use, the lavish decorations cover the cabinets from top to bottom, complemented by brass moon and dagger hardware. Used to store garments, the compound cabinet stacks a small storage chest for hats or out of-season clothes on a regular-sized cabinet that stowed everyday garments and bedding.

“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.”
