Whether you are shopping for a wedding present for a newlyweds’ first home, a thoughtful gift for a nesting mummy, or a gift for yourself because why the heck not, we’ve rounded up a handy shopping guide to some of our favourite homeware stores in Jakarta.
Growing up, we all had that mum who ooh-ed and aah-ed for hours on end looking at trinkets and tchotchkes in homeware stores, handcrafted ceramic homewares and kitchenwares. Now that we have little bubs of our own, we find ourselves doing the exact same thing. Hours are spent reading up on interior design books, pinning loads of inspirations on Pinterests and playing house… for real! Here’s where to find vignettes (home decor speak for a small grouping of objects that creates a pleasing focal point) to help spruce up and beautify your home.
Do you have an eclectic style? Then, this one is just right around your alley. Alska Home is a small homeware shop that was started by friends who love to travel the globe. The boutique sources one-of-a-kind bespoke pieces, including an array of culturally inspired goods that are authentic, textural, and beautifully patterned. We love this benjarong royal night plate that can make a perfect centerpiece on any dining table and this benjarong mini trinket case, a perfect place to store your most wearable jewelry next to your bed.
Alska Home, Jl. Cipete Raya No.7C, South Jakarta. p. +62 21 7590 4783.
Nagarey is the perfect home decor store for those of us whose style is minimal and earthy. If you love to bake (or just have a sweet tooth) pick up this beautifully crafted cake stand. Otherwise, this bendera basket is the perfect size to store all of your throws and pillows in the living room. It’s always the little things that add up to love.

You’ll love LinoLuna for its minimal style whose trends reflects the interior trends happening now. We absolutely love their Terrazzo planters in their gold pedestal stand. The elevating steel stands will maintain an airy look and if you buy different heights, the varying heights will utilize all your vertical space making a room feel larger. Other things we are currently eyeing on is this beautiful tribal Bermock Misty Grey Multifunction Throw Blanket that will easily make a statement in your living room.
