Interior Design {Teak Furniture}

Today I wanted to share a bit more with you about a lovely furniture shop I stumbled upon in Hong Kong {see my travel report on Bloesem Blog here}. It is called TREE and claim to be the first eco-chic furniture boutique in Hong Kong.

TREE shop in Elgin Street

Founder Nicole Wakley had a very clear vision to share with Hong Kong of a beautiful, sustainable and comfortable home living. TREE's concept incorporates a clean, relaxed and re-energized living space with strong contemporary lines and flawless craftsmanship.

I am totally into teak furniture pieces and I loved what I discovered at TREE. It would have been hard to choose between, the beautifully hand crafted tables, the bookcases and lovely storage boxes made of reclaimed wood from abandoned fishing boats in Indonesia {with an industrial twist}. 

In Singapore it's not really a problem to shop for teak furniture pieces... From upscale vintage, eco-chic shop Journey East or personalized shopping at Origin Asia,  to wholesale warehouse* on the East Coast, there are plenty of options to furnish your home with style.

If you like vintage refurbished pieces, you can check Like That One in Bukit Batok, or A Thousand Tales in Haji Lane {near Arab Street}. And Restore in Tanjong Pagar Rd is a lovely small cafe selling refurbished chairs and armchairs. They make wonderful waffles too!

Let me know if you are looking for something in particular, I might know the right place for you to shop in Singapore!

What type of furniture do you like for your home? do you shop vintage or reclaimed furniture pieces?


* We've personally bought from Origin Asia, Scanteak in Joo Chiat and at the wholesale warehouse in Ubi Avenue. Ask me if you need an advice!

  1. The furniture looks beautiful. A lot of people love to purchase teak furniture in Indonesia and I'm very tempted, but you have to invest your money into it for sure even in Jakarta. It is cheaper than in other parts of the world, but still steep for me. I'm an IKEA girl. I like the design at TREE. Very stylish!
