Guest Picks: The Chinese Year of the Dragon
This is the Year of the Dragon in the Chinese zodiac, and the dragon is a very special symbol of good fortune, wisdom and power. A creature of myth and legend, he is not the monster that Westerners battle and slay, but rather a divine beast of good luck. Add one of these great dragon pieces to your home to bring chinoiserie chic style and luck your way.
