Norr11’s chair and lamp, and &tradition’s desk & chair set are samples of the Grey Scale trend – the design that teams shades of grey or other monochromatic cool colours, with warm earthenware. Brands that do this well, channelling a sleek and sophisticated Scandinavian vibe, are emerging Danish furniture companies Norr11 and &tradition.
Team with handcrafted objects to add warmth and texture – such as the beautiful, crotched artisan lamps from celebrated London “maker” Naomi Paul (stocked by Lane Crawford).
Continuing the craft theme into accessories, TREE has a new variety of ceramics handmade in Bali by Australian ceramicist and designer Fliss Dodd, with a Hong Kong twist: the collection of mugs, bowls and storage containers features names of districts – from Kennedy Town and Victoria Harbour to Shek O and Mong Kok – loosely handwritten and wrapped around every piece.
Still from the patriotic spirit, give a new cushion in G.O.D.’s signature print, the Letterbox. Every one distinctly painted, this vintage-inspired textile rekindles memories of the old letterboxes that have been scattered throughout hallways in older Hong Kong buildings.
Tap the upcycling trend having a signature piece such as the Billchair from Self., the British design studio renowned for its high-end, exquisitely restored and redesigned Dining table Hong Kong. The special-edition Billchair was released in 1981, in Frome Somerset, and revived in September 2016, in Godalming, England. “This great, 47dexlpky chair is equally in the home in the dining table along with the office. Its simple curves and lines turn it into a classic,” says Tracy Kwan, director of lifestyle at Lane Crawford.
Or visit TREE to look into the Organik selection of tables, bench seating and room dividers made out of Forest Stewardship Council-certified recycled teak and mixed hardwoods. Produced in Indonesia, these pieces are fused combined with traditional butterfly key joinery to keep the natural character from the wood.
No interior scheme is done without introducing several eco-friendly accents – like the SATTRUP rug from Ikea, Dining Chairs Hong Kong, an all-natural fibre extracted from the agave plant.
