It seems black is the new black when it comes to interior design. At TREE, the “Graphic” collection features pieces crafted from sustainably sourced solid European oak stained in black.

Our concrete jungle doesn’t conjure the greenest of thoughts. However, according to Colliers, the rising awareness of wellness, smart living and the environment have become key for developers and landlords in Hong Kong. In March last year, 31 leading property and construction firms signed the Hong Kong Business Environment Council’s Low Carbon Charter, agreeing to work towards decarbonisation. Colliers believes we should now start to see more residential projects featuring sustainability concepts – great news for all. Read more about these hopeful trends in the property market in their report, “Smart and Green Living in Action”.
