This 19th-century monumental elmwood daybed from China's Shanxi province features an outward-curving apron with cusped edges and a tightly-woven rattan top. The daybed's abbreviated cabriole legs end in feet bearing auspicious ruyi symbols of prosperity, suggesting the platform is floating on good fortune. Traditionally, a daybed such as this was not only a place to sleep, but also to a pot to drink tea, play a game, or share an intimate moment.

“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.”
