This early 20th century three-drawer table began its life as a petite writing desk, produced for an export market that catered to Western tastes. An unusual design element for Chinese tables, the splayed legs of this console are reminiscent of the tapered A-frame of large Chinese noodle cabinets. The legs are stabilized by a latticework stretcher, an adaptation of Western forms that doubles as a low shelf. The table was then finished in a vibrant cinnabar red lacquer, a time-consuming process that requires thirty or more coats. We love how the beautifully aged red calls out the table’s clean lines.

“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.”
