The stool is a central fixture of Chinese furniture culture. Found in a variety of materials and forms, the stool transcends class lines, as much at home in the provincial courtyard as it is in the grand hall of a wealthy estate. Whether worked from fine hardwood or cobbled together from wood scraps, the ever-practical stool finds its place in all corners of the home.

This gorgeous hardwood stool is shaped in a traditional drum form first popularized during the Song dynasty (960-1279). The stool features a rounded seat and five legs that bow outwards to match the curved shape of a drum, each carved with archaistic dragon scrollwork. A band of imitation boss-head nails rings the seat like those used to stretch hide across an actual drum. Darkened with a warm, red-brown stain, the stool beautifully showcases the tight grain of its hardwood construction and elevates its surroundings with quiet elegance.

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.”
