These early 20th-century tall-back chairs from Southern China are built from spotted bamboo and woven reed. Because the top rail resembles the yoke for an ox, chairs of this style were often referred to as "yokeback" chairs. Creating furniture from bamboo was a traditional Chinese art form in itself, requiring carpenters with specialized skills, talents, and training to bend, form, and tie the extraordinarily strong yet lightweight material.

“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.”
