Want to personalise your own place? iDecorate has got an array of unique, high quality art and homeware sourced from across the globe
Hong Kong apartments may not be the most spacious (dang it rent!), but that won’t stop us from making them look as cosy and homely as possible. There are a number of furniture stores and home stores in Hong Kong where we can shop stylish homeware, as well as online platforms like Bydeau where we can shop flowers. Online store iDecorate sells everything from art to homeware and linen, just almost everything that a Hong Kong apartment needs, and their new showroom is scheduled for September.
What’s the concept of iDecorate?
Although Hong Kong apartments are generally small, it’s easy enough to make them feel like home, it just takes a little vision and the right products. Thankfully, iDecorate has landed to bridge the gap between high-end luxury homeware and high-street labels.
Specialising in sourcing affordable artisanal home goods from across the world, Shana Buchanan and Christie Simpson have been in the game long enough to know what works, and hand select creative pieces that can be mixed and matched for any interior style.
“We realised that the market in Hong Kong was crying out for creative brands that are not necessarily high-end, but that are high quality; brands that are created by artists, designers and small business owners,” explains Buchanan.
What do they sell?
When the pair is sourcing goods for the online shop, they try to find products that have a story behind them and evoke an emotion by the buyer, meaning the company has formed great friendships with the artists and designers that they collaborate with across the world.
iDecorate sell gorgeous bedding from brands such as Kip & Co and SackMe!, and they also have a range of artworks by Australian artist Danielle Cross that capture the essence of the city in a contemporary way. On top of that, the store stocks a selection of chairs, display units and other furniture that are all suitable for Hong Kong’s smaller apartment sizes.
How do I make my apartment pop?
So how do you make your apartment feel a little more homely in Hong Kong, especially when rented? Well, Simpson – who also works as a creative fashion and interior stylist – suggests that you start with soft furnishings. “I would say, start with something simple like our Kip & Co bedding that comes in some really beautiful colours. Then, when you find a particular colour that you like, you can add a piece of art to complement, and then kind of work from there.”
For those who love colour, design and things that are a little more unique, you will love the offerings at iDecorate. Recently closed their Times Square pop-up, iDecorate is relocating to a bigger showroom which is expected to be open in September.
