The Year of the Tiger is just around the corner (Tuesday, February 1) and in keeping with tradition, Hong Kong is lighting up with bright and colourful Chinese New Year displays. Sure, social distancing restrictions remain, but that doesn't mean we can't celebrate in style and what better way to get into the CNY spirit than to inject a little festive flair into your home.
Enter Ikea's brand new Chinese New Year decorations, the Kungstiger collection, which includes everything from lanterns, rugs, cushions, tableware, and other home accessories to usher in all the good luck and fortune we need for the new year. The collection also has some adorable tiger-shaped products as well as auspicious floral items and multicoloured designs.
Find comfort in lucky red tiger cushions ($149.90) as well as cute mini plushies that draw inspiration from the traditional Chinese children tiger-head shoes in white, green and red ($34.90). Hong Kong exclusives come in the form of a red tiger doormat ($49.90) and cushions with blossoming peony designs ($79.90-$99.90), along with interior decorations like magnets or wall stickers ($12.90-$24.90).
Lighting options include the more traditional looking red pendant lamp shade ($279.9) or the contemporary style peony lampshade ($129.90). There's even an artificial potted mandarin plant ($39.90) for those of us that don't have green fingers (RIP succulents) that will last for more Chinese New Years to come.
From decorative peony placemats ($12.90) and classic wooden Chinese New Year snack boxes ($199.90) to a see-through blue floral serving bowl ($99.90), tiger-shaped chopstick holders ($29.90), soy sauce plates embellished with a tiger ($29.90) and much more, Chinese New Year dining at home is looking much more colourful with Ikea's Kungstiger items.
