This impressive set of doors dates to the turn of the century and originated as the outermost entrance gate to a traditional courtyard home in northern China. Crafted of northern elm (yumu), the rustic doors have developed a rich patina from years of use, enhancing the wood grain and imparting a wonderfully smooth texture. Hobnailed iron trim bands the edges, matched by an impressive latch and decorative plates in the shape of clouds or ruyi symbols. The doors have been elevated by a custom steel mount for display as a large indoor sculpture.

“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.”
