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.

“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.”
