With no stretchers or spandrels, this gorgeous altar table flows like a ribbon, rounding the bend to form straight, waterfall sides that end in scrolled feet. Dated to the mid-19th century, the console is expertly crafted of northern elm (yumu) with traditional mortise-and-tenon joinery, devoid of any carvings, aprons or spandrels to complicate the minimalist form. Dovetail joinery adds intrigue to the corners and antique repairs hint at the table's long and storied life. With its streamlined simplicity, the table recalls the elegance and austerity of Ming-dynasty furniture design.

“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.”
