Hong Kong’s furniture industry has definitely grown over the past couple of years and home decor shopping has never been easier. From physical stores to online shopping sites, the sky’s the limit when it comes to options. So, if you’re looking to re-decorate, browse through our roundup of some of the best stores for beautiful and unique homeware items.
We’re big fans of homegrown brands, and love that TREE’s roots are firmly planted in Hong Kong. The go-to for all things sustainably stylish, deck out your entire home with unique, timeless pieces that have been lovingly crafted using reclaimed or recycled solid teak, oak or walnut, along with handpicked finishing touches sourced from all over the world!
From dining and coffee tables to beds, desks and accessories (you can never have too many throws and cushions), check out TREE’s Simply City Collection, which is inspired by sleek and chic structures perfect for maximising vertical spaces. Hong Kong homes are notoriously tiny, so we’re all about finding cool, statement pieces that make a big impact in such a small space! Featuring classic designs with a sophisticated edge, browse its eco-wood options in various shapes and sizes (or personalise your own!) to fit those nooks and crannies.
