Chinese Square Corner Scholar's Cabinet


Although elaborate decoration became increasingly common in Qing-dynasty furniture design, the Ming-dynasty’s legacy of clean, elegant lines remained a powerful influence as seen in this statuesque scholar’s cabinet. Made of warm-colored cedar, the early 20th century cabinet is all square lines save for the gently rounded spandrel at the base. Serene in its simplicity, the cabinet was perfect for a scholar’s studio, opening to shelves and a set of drawers to store the sage’s prized artifacts and artist’s tools.
