Associated with the Chinese elements of heat, fire and red, if you’re keen to introduce some rich, berry tones to the home, then the Year of the Horse is a perfect excuse to start rooting around for some Oriental treasures.

In fact, blending reds and golds with contemporary pieces from different dynasties will not only imbibe some Far Eastern promise, but could also bring fortune into the mix.

Barny Gloyn, MD at Linwood Fabrics & Wallpapers, says: “Red is a colour that has symbolism in China, a dynamic and vibrant colour, it has long symbolised good luck and happiness.

“Amaya is a vivacious fabric collection which features red as its principle colour. This has been twinned with a rich metallic accent, which runs throughout various patterns for a touch of Oriental opulence.”

Gallop towards Chinese charm, with these Far Eastern-themed treasures for the home.
