Traditionally, a low table such as this would have been used as a daybed, providing not only a place to sleep but also a space to drink tea, play a game, or share an intimate moment. Built in the mid-19th century, this elmwood table was likely commissioned by a wealthy homeowner in China's Shanxi province. The table's simple form is balanced by humpback stretchers and charismatic spandrels, hand-carved to resemble billowing clouds. The original top was replaced by one of crushed bamboo, providing a firm, subtly textured surface, making it ideal as a coffee table or low console.

“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.”
