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.

“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.”
