With no stretchers or spandrels, this low table flows like a ribbon, rounding the bend to form waterfall legs that end in scrolled feet. On each of its bench-style legs, an auspicious carved ruyi promises good fortune. Dated to the late 19th century, this table would have been used as a surface for viewing painted scrolls or as a musician's stand on which to play the qin, a traditional Chinese string instrument. Perfect as a coffee table or a wide bench, we love this table for its bold contours, minimalist form, and graphic use of negative space.

“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.”
