This early 20th-century ladder was originally used to access the loft in a traditional Chinese courtyard home. Crafted with mortise-and-tenon joinery methods, without the use of nails and screws, the elmwood ladder has a tapered a-frame design with squared sides and slightly rounded rungs. The topmost rung is arched and carved on either end with decorative clouds. Cloaked in a bright red lacquer finish, the tall ladder adds a pop of color to modern interiors as a rustic accent or unexpected display for blankets and textiles.

From the collection of Frances and Gary Comer.

Ladder frame is slightly warped.

“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.”
