Traditional decorative tassels are a popular luxury home accessory that is derived from Chinese ancient costumes. In the past men and girls used to tie tassels to their belts which would create a sense of dynamic flowing style, bringing some elegance and romance to them. Today you can hang them from your furniture hardware as a luxury embellishment to enhance the beauty or simply hang them on a picture hook or a wall as an ornament in its own right. We think they brighten up and add the character as well as the good omen to any home.

The Vermilion Bird (Chinese: 朱雀 Zhūquè) is one of the Four Symbols of the Chinese constellations. Four Symbols are four mythological creatures appearing among the Chinese constellations and viewed as the guardians of the four cardinal directions. These four creatures are also referred to by a variety of other names, including “Four Guardians”, “Four Gods”, and “Four Auspicious”.

The Vermilion bird represents the fire element, the direction south, and the season of summer correspondingly. It is described as a red bird that resembles a pheasant with a five-coloured plumage and is perpetually covered in flames. The Vermilion Bird is elegant and noble in both appearance and behaviour. Symbolically, and as part of spiritual and religious belief, the Vermilion Bird has been culturally important across countries in the East Asian cultural sphere.
