For many years, rose chairs were thought to have been exclusively used by women due to their floral name. However, they were a universal form of seating, typically used for writing due to their low back and small frame. This pair of 19th-century walnut rose chairs were constructed in China's Shanxi province using traditional mortise and tenon joinery techniques to continuously join the top rail, sides, and legs. The back and sides are kept open with decorative quatrefoil cutouts, a charming detail that softens the chairs' otherwise angular forms. Cloaked in a layer of rich lacquer, the pair has an inimitable warmth and softness that can only be achieved by centuries of use.

“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.”
