Happy lunar new year and Gong Xi Fa Cai.  Year of the rat is officially here. We have had a big fun celebrating CNY since last night.

  1. We made little mouses in all kinds–cakes, eggs, lemons…

Chinese New Year through the Looking Glass

One of the best things about Chinese New Year is that there is 7 days to celebrate.  And  today is the 3rd day.

 

One of the traditions about Chinese New year is to burn incenses to worship ancestors and pray for the best for the new year.  The experience is just absolutely beautiful.

 

For this year, we created a series of interiors featured with Chinese antique and Chinoiserie styles to celebrate the year of the rooster.  For this particular  dining set in the following video, the inspiration comes from the tradition that Chinese burn incenses to worship the kitchen god on the 3rd day of the Festival.  The set features with antique Huanghuali arm chairs, Ming dining table, pagoda chandelier chinoiserie wallpaper and Louis XVI gilded mirror.

 

 

Happy Monday and Happy Chinese New Year
