Designer Jiun Ho harmonised traditional and modern colours for the Kinkou collection. In Asian culture red symbolises good luck, joy, prosperity, celebration, happiness, and a long life.


Red envlopes with money inside are often exchanged for the Chinese New Year, it is also believed that the colour red wards off evil spirits.

The cream linen finish is unique to the Kinkou collection and is available on most of the case goods.  Aside from the linen finish, the Kinkou collection is also particular with it's use of Ceruse finish woods. QTR CUt Ash Veneer is a great example of this.  The cerused effect, alternatively known as limed finish, is when the characteristics of the wood is defined using liming wax or paint to accentuate the wood grain. This technique is preferably used on dark stained wood. Cerused wood dates back to the 16th century and is still a highly desired finish these days. This 'distressed' wood technique is used to create antiqued look and add depth to the surface.
