"The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away." - Pablo Picasso


Our logo, rich with symbolism

In the Far East, Koi fish symbolize prosperity, luck and longevity. The symbol of two indicates partnership and synergy within relationships; it also represents two practices in perfect balance, interior design (modern form) and feng shui (ancient wisdom). The circular shape is the symbol of harmony and completion. Red ink used on all our stationery indicates wealth. The final element is the wood block art form representing fine historical craftsmanship.
