Just arrived in store, the Stika Sideboard is a new addition to the TRIBE by Indigo Natural Oak Stika collection. The stylish space-saving cabinet is designed with “tambour” doors (sliding doors made with slats) that move along a curved groove inside the cabinet so you don’t need the room required to open traditional hinged doors. It’s the perfect design solution for Hong Kong’s small spaces.
Find it at Indigo Living’s flagship store at 6/F, Horizon Plaza or online at indigo-living.com.

INSIDE is 25!
Happy Birthday to furniture store INSIDE – 25 this year! The brand, which offers unique handcrafted furniture, home furnishings and homeware products in Hong Kong, is also celebrating the opening of a new store in Times Square in early March. Look out for a new collection of furniture from India arriving in April, too – think vintage, rustic, upcycled pieces that will bring a vibrant, ethnic style to your home.
White Tulip is the first complete bathroom range created from a single source by Philippe Starck for bathroom manufacturer Duravit. The unusual shape of everything in the range follows the organic silhouette of a blooming tulip, unfolding in an almost sculptural way. The two style collections are “Nature”, with its fresh, naturally inspired bathrooms, and “Culture”, an expression of urban sophistication. Both feature subtle and natural colours and materials that help to underline the extraordinary designs. Available from E.Bon, the authorised Duravit dealer in Hong Kong, at 369 Lockhart Road, Wan Chai, or online.
Ethikaal is a new online marketplace offering a curated collection of fab sustainable brands that are good for the planet, great for the people making them and beautiful for our homes. The launch collection includes the likes of Soaper Delights (all-natural handmade soaps, deodorants and lip balms), Conspiracy Chocolate (craft bean-to-bar “accidentally vegan” chocolate), and The Impact Box, a sustainable gift box from local brands and non-profits, with a Sustainable Development Goals theme.
