Happy Chinese New Year from Tai Ping!

By danielle


The Lantern Festival came to Manhattan last week as Tai Ping hosted its annual Chinese New Year party in its showroom overlooking Union Square. The event has become a fixture on the design calendar, an opportunity for the design community to peruse Tai Ping’s newest collections of couture carpets and enjoy a glass of something bubbly and auspicious. This year, with the showroom awash in the rosy light from paper lanterns, Tai Ping toasted the Year of the Rat. Rats may get a bad rap here in NYC, but in Chinese tradition the rat is a bringer of prosperity and good luck—and who are we to argue? Until next year at Tai Ping!

The Design-Calendar Girls would like to thank Guest-Blogger Jessica Olshen, JBO Communications, Inc for this post and for the following fabulous photographs:
