Podcast Interview: Betsy Nathan & Pagoda Red
Today I got to interview Betsy Nathan founder/owner of Pagoda Red. She jumped on a plane to China to study Mandarin and came back with an idea. This idea turned into so much more…
About: Betsy Nathan was born a collector. Her mother, Ann, a renowned Chicago gallerist, surrounded her family with an eclectic mix of fine art and folk, handcrafted and iconic furniture and other extraordinary objects found worldwide. In the early 1990s, Betsy moved to Beijing to study Mandarin. There, she met her mentors, a group of legendary Chinese furniture connoisseurs. She became an expert in provenance, craftsmanship, joinery and history. Betsy moved back to the United States and established her first showroom in Chicago in 1997. Since then, PAGODA RED has grown into a renowned resource for designers, collectors and aficionados around the world.
