    Rooster up any room

    Muse, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 28/01/2017

    » Invite all the good and auspicious vibes into your house with decor pieces in the shape of this year's zodiac animal: the rooster. The Chinese believe that the rooster is a symbol of courage, honesty, mercy and loyalty, and in the ancient days, it was also believed to drive away bad spirits. Demons that wreak havoc at night are supposedly gone by morning, thanks to the rooster's crowing. Glam up your living room with some rooster statues, which could possibly direct the winds of wealth into your household (one can dream). If you're on the more practical side, there are also plates, trays, candles and bowls in the shape of a chicken in ceramic or aluminium to choose from, whether you want something elegant or cute. Simply going for the gold shade is another option for those not too keen on the rooster motif. We've spotted some dandy, gold candleholders that add a touch of prosperity, opulence and prestige to any home. Check out these pieces at all Central department stores, where a sale of 30% is also ongoing at the decor section until Feb 5.

    The Missile Man

    Muse, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 28/01/2017

    » Pakorn Wongkittikraiwan looks extremely serene for someone who designs jewellery as tough as nails. Looking relaxed in an inconspicuous plain shirt and black trousers, the stoic 30-year-old isn't much of a splashy persona compared to his fashion industry counterparts. Yet, he is the walking soul of Missile, the home-grown, rock-inspired jewellery brand, which celebrates its 12th anniversary this year. At the launch of "Missile 12th Anniversary The Greatest Hits" exhibition earlier this month at Siam Center, Pakorn was introduced as the young blood designer of the brand, despite the fact that his history with Missile began seven years ago.
