This lacquered wood tray exemplifies the refined style of Japanese tea ceremony objects. The square tray is elevated by a trestle base comprised of short, s-curve corner legs and flat floor stretchers. The legs are bisected by humpback stretchers and topped by a stepped apron of geometric openwork design. A thin layer of red lacquer finishes the tray, adding subtle color while allowing the beautiful grain patterns show through. A time-honored way to serve tea, the tray also serves as a platform for displaying prized objects.

“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.”
