Kung Hei Fat Choy!
Because it is a happy celebration for our Chinese friends, might as well take you back to one of the ancient temples in China.
My last year’s trip in China, my first foreign trip ever was very unforgettable. The memories are still fresh and I can’t hide the fact that I am one lucky girl to be able to visit the country for free.
One of the few attractions that we visited in Shanghai was the Old Temple, you can read about it here. What I am featuring this time are the old doors painted in red and with dragon head design brass door handles.
History tells us that, the dragon was used to symbolize the Emperor of China. It is the a symbol of good luck, strength and power. This may be the reason why there a lot of things designed with dragon in it just like the door handles.
Over time many had changed, including the designs of furnitures and doors or just everything. They are designed not just for decorative purposes but as well as to the function and durability, like the grant sliding door hardware. If I am to choose which door to install in my future home, I might choose the old style with a touch of modern.
