FLOWERS

In Chinese culture flowers symbolize growth fulfillment and prosperous new beginnings in life. In Feng Shui flowers are also seen as symbols of success flourishing and good luck. And also like in Western culture flowers can symbolize love and unity.

LOTUS

In Buddhist symbolism the lotus flower represents purity and perfection as the lotus plant grows in mud and muck yet the beautiful bloom arises untainted. The lotus sometimes represents the Buddha himself and can also symbolize love and harmony between a married couple. The lotus also represents the summer as it blooms during this hot season.

SCROLLING CLOUDS

The repetitive scrolling cloud motif is probably the most common carved decorative accent in Antique Chinese Furniture. This pretty carved flourish often found on aprons and spandrels is meant to convey good fortune.
