For January, 2014

It is typical practice for Chinese homes to do spring cleaning in preparing for CNY visiting and spring festival celebrations. This Chinese New Year 2014, introduce the New Year with a Year of the Horse gift with Qua’s Horse and Just Colour lacquer ware collection.

For a traditional and classic interior design look, go for Qua’s Horse collection for polished dining ware and living room accessories. The rich shade of red and maroon conveys an air of exquisiteness and affluence. In addition, the collection is very suitable as CNY Corporate Gifts as red is a lucky colour during CNY. According to legend, in ancient China, Nian, a man-eating beast from the mountains, could infiltrate houses silently to prey on humans. The people later learned that Nian was sensitive to the colour red, so they scared it away with explosions, fireworks and liberal use of the colour red.


For a modern and contemporary look, go for the dining ware and table accessories from the Just Colour collection. With trendy colours like hot pink and turquoise, be sure to welcome, impress and delight your guests with happy colours. While still retaining the tradition of eating CNY goodies and decorating of homes, this unique and exclusive collection of Qua attempts to marry tradition with modernity. Perfect as a CNY decorative gift!

This Chinese New Year 2014, usher in the Year of the Horse with abundance of luck, good fortune and long life with Qua’s Horse (Ma, 馬) Collection! In the Chinese culture, the horse is a significant auspicious symbol as it was a vital element of victory in battles, racing and travel in ancient times. The Horse is hence an embodiment of prosperity, victory, energy and spirit.

One commonly used CNY greeting during the year of the horse is 龙马精神 long ma jing shen, or the ‘vitality of a dragon and horse’. It is used to describe the abundance in vigour of a dragon or horse, or the vitality and spirit of the aged. When someone greets you with this phrase, he hopes you will be as energetic as a dragon or horse in the New Year and have smooth endeavours. Our products have hence incorporated this auspicious greeting, and are ideal as CNY gift premiums for your senior clients and customers or as CNY corporate gifts.

In giving an item from this collection, you are wishing the recipient greater abundance in wealth, vitality and success.
