Stools have been a favored form of seating in Chinese culture for centuries. Found in a variety of materials and forms, the stool transcends class lines, as much at home in the provincial courtyard as it is in the grand hall of a wealthy estate.

This style of low square stool is known as a fang deng, and doubles as a low table for displaying objects or serving tea. Crafted with mortise-and-tenon joinery, without the use of nails or screws, these square-corner stools feature floating-panel tops, straight legs ending in hoofed feet, inset side panels, and single drawers for stowing odds and ends. The pair is left undecorated save for the bright red cinnabar lacquer finish, now beautifully worn from over a century of use.

“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.”
