This elegant Chinese bench dates to the early 20th century and was constructed of northern elmwood (yumu) using mortise-and-tenon joinery techniques. The bench has a narrow seat raised by splayed legs and is decorated by finely beaded edges, spiral-form spandrels, and a shallow apron carved to resemble a furled scroll. Originating as shared seating in public gathering spaces, simple benches such as this would have been placed throughout the home, used as casual seating indoors and out.

“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.”
