This squat, melon-like barrel is actually a turn of the century Peking opera drum, originally used by a theater troupe to accompany the dances and songs of traditional Chinese opera. The drum's finely joined oak wood slats are held together by hand-smithed iron bands and cloaked in a rich patina from a century of use. Filled with lush greenery and foliage, this rustic drum barrel makes for a unexpected planter in modern interiors.

“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.”
