WHERE TO BUY FURNITURE IN BALI
Kim Soo Home – Seminyak
Furniture shopping in Bali should always start and end at Kim Soo. This furniture and homewares trailblazer is a design store mecca, with an attached showroom-style destination called “The Space” to help you imagine your own Kim Soo abode. It’s a little bit bohemian, a little bit contemporary, a little bit vintage and a whole lot of loveliness. They source products from across the Indonesian archipelago to manufacture and design their own unique styles that feature wood, metal, textiles, stone, grass and paper, producing a lovely long list of fabulous furniture pieces that goes on and on, and (trust us) so will your purchases.
Lio Collection – Kerobokan
Christos Vassilios Liokouras moved his family furniture business to Bali in 2005, and since then, Lio Collection has become a well-respected indoor and outdoor furniture company that we simply LOVE. The company is most famous for their rattan and bamboo collection, but they offer plenty more home-making pieces to make you swoon, from leather and wood, to lightings and handcrafted paintings.
Heveya® – Canggu
When it comes to furniture shopping in Bali, it’s easy to hone in on alllll the pretty homewares. But let’s talk about the most important piece of furniture for the bedroom: AKA, the mattress. Sure, it’s hidden beneath lovely linens and not something you can show off to your guests, but buying the right mattress is one of the best things you can do for your home (and your health!). Here in Bali, we go direct to Heveya® – a European bedding store from Singapore & Hong Kong that specialises in eco-friendly mattresses and pillows. The sustainable creations here are not only great for the planet, they’re both comfortable and supportive for you too. They come in all different heights and firmness types to suit all ages, sleeping positions and personal preferences, and they’re made only with natural latex harvested from organic rubber plantations. That means no synthetic foam, metal springs or glues – only a peaceful and non-toxic sleeping environment that you and your body will love! Psst – you can book a personal visit to the showroom in Canggu via the Heveya® website!
Balquisse Living – Seminyak
To make furniture shopping in Bali oh-so easy, Balquisse Living is your one-stop shop for your home decorating desires. It houses four different brands: Hishem Furniture (which specialises in outdoor synthetic rattan furniture); Shahinaz Collection (for soft furnishings); Aisha Timeless Collection (a haven of antiques); and Zohra Boukhari Interior Decorator, the brains behind many fashionable venues in Bali like Bistrot, DaLa Spa and The Shop at Ritz Carlton. Head to their main showroom on Sunset Road to get inspired.
Warisan Furniture – Kerobokan
Warisan Furniture is an international brand with showrooms all over the world – but Bali is their home base. They produce a diverse mix of quality rustic and contemporary furniture (including beautiful four-poster beds that we’ve had our eyes on!). Creating both indoor and outdoor goods, they use Indonesian resources for materials, including wood, rattan, stone, and shells. The result is simply divine!
Vinoti Living Bali – Renon & Kuta
Priding itself on upmarket, individual pieces that you won’t be able to find anywhere else, Vinoti Living is where you can shop all sorts of unique furniture pieces, from benches to beds, clocks and cushions, to photo frames, lamps, vases and artwork. Located in South Bali’s Galeria shopping mall, this is a ‘grown ups’ homewares haven. Check out their great range of high end sectional sofas, and their very beautiful one-off mirrors.
Ikat Gallery – Kerobokan
Renowned as Bali’s go-to for museum-quality Indonesian art and furniture, a visit to Ikat Gallery is a treat in itself – and that’s before you take home their luxurious home furnishings. Specialising in Indonesian antique furniture, home decor, jewellery, and textiles, the fine art and exclusive pieces at Ikat Gallery have been hand-selected from different islands in Indonesia, transformed into luxury home decor that you’ll find nowhere else other than at Ikat Gallery (and later within your own home!).
DC Habitat – Kerobokan

From refined linen bedding with unique cushions designs and throw blankets, to beds, chairs, lounges and dining tables in different furniture styles.

Soo Santai – Seminyak
After some furniture that’s a little bit different? Something to sit on that isn’t wood, iron or metal? How about a big comfy bean bag chair? Soo Santai have the best collection of bean bags in Bali, from purple to orange, water and sun resistant, indoor and outdoor – they even have a floating bean bag chair range for your swimming pool or summer getaway… Sold!
Teckococo – Denpasar
One of Bali’s longest reigning wood furniture manufacturers and exporters, Teckococo is loved for its timeless and contemporary designs that cover outdoor and indoor furniture pieces for your living room, garden terrace, bedroom, and even your office environment. All of their products are made using sustainable tropical plantation wood from Java, and besides having environmental friendliness at the forefront of their business model, they’re also dedicated to innovating and customising pieces that improve your own life, through functionality, affordability and timeless designs.
Creative Living – Kerobokan
Specialising in custom-made furniture pieces, Creative Living offers everything from loose-piece items to built-in furniture, like kitchen cabinets, bathroom vanities and wardrobes. And if you want to take a look at the quality of their products before you make your custom order, their showroom stocks a selection of items on display and ready for sale for you to check out and build your interior inspiration.
Domicil Living – Seminyak
Charmingly exotic, French-inspired and downright delightful – just a few ways we describe Domicil, a lifestyle, furniture and homewares concept store that’s at once contemporary and colonial. Inspired by late Baroque-esque styles and contemporary Victorian architecture, Domicil ain’t your typical interiors store. With brass-accent lounges, vintage chandeliers, solid wood dressers and classic carved armchairs, it’s a must on any furniture spree.
ZAPPdesign – Kerobokan
Those who know and love IKEA’s sleek and simple aesthetic will love ZAPPdesign. Rio-born founder Reynaldo Maldonado (aka Zapp) fuses his Brazilian flair with contemporary Scandinavian and Asian designs, resulting in luxurious, clean, and modern furnishings. This is modern furniture shopping Bali-style, and we love it.
iBalDesigns – Kerobokan
Producing high-end designs, iBalDesigns produce everything from stools and tables, to towel racks and mini bars. Hailing from London, owner Charles Orchard knows art and antiques, and is committed to being environmentally conscious. Even though iBalDesigns predominantly supplies furniture to hotels on the island, you can pick up some absolute gems for yourself at The Orchard, their shop and showroom in Kerobokan.
Living Karma – Berawa
The brainchild of a Danish designer, Living Karma offers a plethora of chic home furnishings and décor that we’re a little bit obsessed with. Using a huge array of products, Living Karma is the place to go to pick up just about anything, from colourful sofas to an outdoor table for BBQ season. The Scandinavian roots can be seen in the clean lines and simplicity of the designs…
Cempaka Bali – Kuta
Having furnished some of the most stylish hotels on the island (Alila Resorts and Novotel Bali, to name-drop a couple), you know you’ll be in safe hands with Cempaka Bali. They create unique and stylish pieces, which take on a contemporary feel but retain the rich heritage of Indonesia’s artists and craftsmen.
Hatiku Indonesia – Seminyak
This Bali-based brand is all about simplicity. As well as furnishings (and even leather bags), Hatiku Indonesia offers stunning furniture pieces that are made from a combination of natural rough materials sourced throughout the island (like leather, cotton, wood, rope and bamboo) put together using high-quality traditional craftsmanship. All of the products are hand-crafted in Indonesia, and in their words have been ‘made with love by hand’.
