    Metallic Wall Clocks

    Sleek and modern, metallic wall clocks convey trust in contemporary sophistication. Ideal for modern living rooms, studios, and lofts, these clocks showcase expertise in using metallic finishes to add a touch of glamour.

    The Art of Choosing Clocks

    Which Style Clock Is Best?

    Opt for a clock that resonates with your interior style—be it contemporary, minimalist, or rustic. The ideal clock colour aligns with personal preference and room decor. Neutral tones convey trust, bold colours make a statement, and metallic finishes add glamour and sophistication.

    Which Size Wall Clock Is Best?

    Size depends on space and preference. Whether it's a bold statement piece or a subtle addition, consider visibility and balance, ensuring the clock complements the room without overwhelming it.

    How to Choose a Wall Clock for My Living Room?

    Consider the living room's decor style. For a modern aesthetic, opt for sleek designs. Traditional spaces benefit from vintage or antique-style clocks. Harmonize with the colour scheme and ensure the size complements the space without dominating it.

    The Chinese Taboo

    A Gift? Let's Stop Right There

    In Chinese tradition, when electing what gift to give for your Chinese friend's birthday, don't give them a clock as gift! Though clocks are not offensive in Chinese culture, giving a clock as a gift sure is!

    This taboo arises from the fact that the phrases "giving you a clock" (sòngzhōng 送钟) and "attending your funeral" (sòngzhōng送终) are homophones in Chinese. Therefore, the action of giving a clock carries a negative connotation and is a widely held cultural taboo.

    Today, especially among the elderly, it is regarded as a sign of bad luck or a curse. On top of that, clocks also symbolize the running out of time. This is especially an uncomfortable reminder for seniors. Giving a clock as a gift is one of the biggest no-no in Chinese culture.
