1. Hong Kong Southside
If there is one one-stop-shop for furniture in Hong Kong other than IKEA, it is Horizon Plaza.
A mecca for homemakers and fashionistas, the 25-storey building in Ap Lei Chau is home to a few dozen furniture shops as well as discount designer fashion brands.
It boasts a wide variety of furniture brands and styles on different floors. (Don’t worry – we’ve also picked our favorite shops within the maze of Horizon Plaza.)
Tips: It’s easier to take the elevator to the top floor (28/F) and work your way down the building by stairs or lifts. Wear comfortable shoes.
Address: 2 Lee Wing St., Ap Lei Chau, Hong Kong
Organic Modernism (Horizon Plaza)
If you’re looking for original mid-century modern furniture [Related Article: Mid Century Modern furniture: Where to shop and more interior tips], Organic Modernism is a must-visit shop.
Organic Modernism reflects the owners’ love for natural materials, especially bronze and walnut.
“We’d like to offer furniture with great designs that are, at the same time, affordable. The founder loves working with bronze especially because the process of forging is more artsy and organic,” Veerle Cinar tells The Editors Company, who co-founded Organic Modernism with her husband.
The store also stocks items inspired by the couple’s love for travel in Southeast Asia. There are home candles, cushion covers and small angel sculptures inspired and made in Bali.
“The furniture with bronze element is more expensive but you’ll have it forever,” says Cinar. A Kashgar chair, fully forged in bronze, is $15,000 for example. Shitake is a walnut and bronze stool is $6,000.
TV cabinets and sideboards are customizable (ranges from $6-23k) while stools are about $800 to $6,000.
Fun fact: “Our home in Hong Kong looks exactly like the shop,” laughs Cinar. It’s a great sign of quality and passion when the designers live in their own work.
Address: 8/F, Horizon Plaza, 2 Lee Wing St., Ap Lei Chau, Hong Kong
TREE (Horizon Plaza)
Established in 2005, TREE is where to look for sustainable hardwood furniture.
TREE offers a wide array of furniture using sustainable wood – mostly from Indonesia. TREE also reclaims and recycles woods from old homes and furniture.
The style is leaning towards simple, rustic and organic. It also means that there may be small imperfections in pieces, the drawers may not pull as smoothly as it should, or the cabinet doors may be slightly crooked.
Its popular Husky dining table (made of reclaimed teak wood), for example, comes in 12 sizes and ranges from $6,950 (120 x 70 x 78cm) to $16,950 (240 x 100 x 78cm).
You’ll find a good collection of kitchenware and home accessories from marble slab to hanging rattan basket.
Good to know: Taking up the entire 28/F, TREE also has a decent café serving hot and cold dishes together with an unbeatable sea view.
Address: 28/F, Horizon Plaza, 2 Lee Wing St., Ap Lei Chau, Hong Kong
Omos (Horizon Plaza)
Warm-colored linens, red oak wood, and cactuses as decoration, Omos is like a cozy seaside home in the Mediterranean.
After working in the furniture wholesale business for over a decade, Gary Lui founded Omos in 2017 with a mission to design natural wooden furniture without creating waste or using chemicals.
From bed heads to dining tables to sliding doors, Omos’ design is natural with a lot of raw edges. Dining tables are around $10k to $20k. The raw edge sliding wooden door cost $16.7k, to give you an idea.
It also stocks some lightings imported from Taiwan and home fragrances the owner loves.
Most of the wood comes from Northern America. For every tree it uses, Omos pledges to plant 10 trees to keep the world green.
Good to know: Omos also offers custom-made service. It usually takes around 4-6 weeks to build after a design is confirmed and cost about $2-3k more than its ready-to-use price.
Address: 26/F, Horizon Plaza, 2 Lee Wing St., Ap Lei Chau, Hong Kong
PAIDI (Horizon Plaza)
If you have been looking for children’s furniture, PAIDI shouldn’t be a stranger.
With more than 80 years of history, PAIDI builds furniture that grows up with children. Its legendary piece is a bed with customizable components (from bars to staircases to slides) so customers can choose their own configurations to suit different needs.
Each bed (excluding mattress) is priced from $7,000.
It also is the sole dealer of EverBlocks from the United States. Resembling LEGO pieces, EverBlocks are colorful plastic blocks to build anything from a chair to a room divider to a mini castle. Each of the blocks cost between $30 to $84. If you’re building a small armchair, it is about $1000 worth of EverBlocks.
Also check out: If you’re shopping for a children’s bed, you may consider getting a mattress at PAIDI, too. It sells mattresses designed for the little ones.
Address: 26/F, Horizon Plaza, 2 Lee Wing St., Ap Lei Chau, Hong Kong
Indigo Living (Horizon Plaza)
You can find something in gold, silver and velvet at almost every corner you look at Indigo Living.
With 11 stores in Asia and the Middle East, Indigo Living sells furniture that exudes luxurious feel. It reminds you of what you can usually find in a luxury home design magazine.
The design may not be the most original but items are easy to match. It’s a great place to shop if you’re missing that one piece of furniture at home.
Some great timeless pieces including Felix Coffee Table ($2,990-$4,290, depending on sizes) and Larissa Cushion Cover ($355).
The Horizon Plaza store also has a cute kids' department. A teepee is $6,990.
Good deals: Indigo Living has a discount outlet inside its Horizon Plaza branch all-year. You can watch out for its seasonal flash sale on its website, too.
Address: 6/F, Horizon Plaza, 2 Lee Wing St., Ap Lei Chau, Hong Kong
Timothy Oulton (Horizon Plaza)
Walking inside Timothy Oulton’s store feels like visiting a hidden gentlemen’s lounge in Britain.
Started as an antique shop in the UK, the British brand specializes in bold and modern design with a playful twist.
Its designs are inspired by military planes and British heritage such as aluminium chests and chesterfield sofas.
“All our furniture emphasizes good design handcrafted with simple tools,” says the sales representative in-store. “All the leathers we use are from happy cows raised in Argentina.”
He goes on to showcase the different leathers you can choose in the shop’s leather bar.
The Saddle Chair can be rotated sideways to become a horse-saddle like an installation – hence the name. Like many of the items inside, you can mix and match different materials and patterns for different parts of the chair. The Saddle Chair is one of the most expensive chairs in the store – cost around $20,000 depending on which materials you choose.
Not a fan of leather? Timothy Oulton recently launched a Noble Souls collection that uses vegetable dyes. Its sofa is extremely deep and comfortable – but not for small homes.
Address: 2/F, Horizon Plaza, 2 Lee Wing St., Ap Lei Chau, Hong Kong
Lovers for classic Scandinavian design should not miss Manks.
Founded in 1996, Manks is a pioneer in bringing stylish furniture from the Scandinavian countries to Hong Kong.
In addition to heavyweights like Carl Hansen and Poul Henningsen, its 6,000-square-feet showroom in Wong Chuk Hang is home to many young and talented Nordic designs.
The Mater Collection by the Danish architect duo Space Copenhagen is one highlight.
Manks also has an antique collection of tableware, furniture, accessories and lightings.
Prices depend on the brands you’re looking for. A Ray Pendant Lamp cost $1,250 while a Finn Juhl Baker Sofa is $211,840.
Last words: Manks’ furniture leans towards the more expensive front -- but for the same brands stocked in other luxury home department stores in Hong Kong, Manks’ price is reasonable.
Address: 14F, Cheung Tak Industrial Building, 30 Heung Yip Road, Wong Chuk Hang

But Yet is a furniture shop dedicated to cats’ owners/slaves.
With a few showrooms around Hong Kong (https://butyet.com/pages/showrooms), But Yet’s PMQ shop is its official display zone that showcases all its products.
Customers can place orders either at the showroom or through its e-shop.
Boasting a small collection, But Yet offers creative and thoughtful designs that are for both cats and their humans. Seek & Peek dining table ($8,650) is a dining table with hammocks underneath and holes in the centre of the table for your cats to play hide-and-seek with you when you’re eating.
Its Shelve & Shield unit ($560-$950 each) combines storage with space for cats to chill. Its Sit & Stretch Dining Chair has an armrest that goes around the back of the chair, allowing more space for your fur pal to sit and stretch with you.
The team behind ButYet is also the award-winning team behind Fit-niture. The collection combined fitness with daily routines using multi-function furniture. It was awarded Salone Satellite 2nd Prize in Milan in 2016.
“We believe that good design enhances lifestyle beyond aesthetics and should be made affordable to all,” says Eric Tong, one of the five founders of But Yet.
“Our philosophy is built upon two aspects of future living: an increasingly compact and efficient home, and one that integrates living with persona… shall it be that of wellbeing, petkeeping, or green-living.”
Fun Fact: The name of the company is inspired by a line in Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Nights Dream” – ““So we grew together, Like to a double cherry, seeming parted, But yet an union in partition, Two lovely berries moulded on one stem.”
Address: 5th floor, Staunton, PMQ, Aberdeen Street 35,Central
“We adhere to an attitude, a continuation of the life of the trees, bring nature into your home,” states on ALOT Living’s website.
ALOT features furniture from more than 30 brands from Japan and Thailand that share a natural and cosy style.
Imagine Muji, but with more varieties.
It offers a comprehensive furniture selection from different price ranges.
A beautiful Caramella Bed Type A (by Hirashima from Japan) is between $29,480 and $39,050. Its Tipo TV Board 140 is $28,050.
Tsuji-Seisakusho has been making dining tables and chairs in Okawa, Fukuoka for the last eight decades. Its Hanne Dining Chair with leather upholstering cost $4,430 each.
While a sleek pantry table from FLO (a Thai brand) is $3,390 and its curvy Enso Sofa (two-seater) is only $3,990.
It also has a bigger location in D-Park, Tsuen Wan.
Good to know: It also sells large wood slabs -- displayed in Central store -- for anyone looking for a centrepiece on the wall or trying to build his/her own furniture.
Address: G/f, 41 Gage Street, Central
Representing more than 40 brands from around the world, MyConcept offers a bit of every style for everyone.
Its impressive line-up features heavily on Italian and Scandinavian furniture – with names like Artemide, Valmori, Gubi and Norman Copenhagen. It also sells everything from wooden furniture from Japan, office design from New York City to Simmons mattress.
It’s the official authorized dealer for Moooi.
In addition to finding the everyday furniture, MyConcept is a good place to find that statement item for your home.
Moooi’s Pig Table ($25,358), anyone? Lazy Life’s Shark bean bag ($1,860)? Or that retro-futuristic sofa bed(s) ($18180) that looks like nothing you have ever seen by Innovation?
Also for: There are two MyConcept showrooms in Hong Kong West. The Central showroom stocks high-end products while the Shek Tong Tsui one focuses on more homey design and features more pendant lights.
Address: Hong Kong Industrial Building, Unit A& E, 10/F, Des Voeux Rd W, Shek Tong Tsui
Floristry M&L is actually a sister business of a marketing agency – the two share the same space.
We like the store because its flowers offer a Scandinavian vibe that compliments the space, without having to become the star of the space. It adds a classy finishing touch to any space.
Good to know: They also offer a monthly/weekly subscription service and deliver well-curated flowers to your home.
Address: G/F, 18 Bonham Strand West, Sheung Wan
Pollen (flower shop)
The charm of Pollen lies within the owners.
Before opening the shop, Pollen’s owners have been arranging and curating flowers part-time.
Pollen offers a good variety of flowers for a reasonable price.
What we love most: “What makes this store great is the personal attention you get from the owners. And while the store is a little small and completely filled with flowers, the feeling you get is that you’re not intimidated and you’re completely comfortable asking for advice,” says Fion Lee.
Don’t be afraid to talk to the shopowners. They’ll help you find the flowers depending on your needs, or even set up a regular personalized flower service just for you.
Address: G/F, 52A Staunton Street, Central

3. Wan Chai (Hong Kong Island)
Archetypal’s two-storey shop in the Star Street neighbourhood has an emphasis on Nordic design.
The shop, also an office, doesn’t have a lot of display space but it’s a good place to find designer lights that will make an impact in your home.
There are also chairs, some coffee tables and maybe one or two dining tables in store.
Prices are on the expensive side but the store offers two major sales per year (in December and in May).
More about Wan Chai: You can also combine a visit to Archetypal with a few interesting shops in the neighborhood like Lala Curio – a colorful and playful Hong Kong home décor boutique shop – and Kapok – a select shop for fashion and home accessories.
Wan Chai is also home to streets of home renovation shops from high-end tiles to curtains to bathroom sinks.
Address: G/F and 1/F, 15 Moon Street, Central
4. Kwun Tong & Kowloon East (Kowloon)
Emoh Design’s showroom, spanning over 6,000 square feet, is a fun treasure trove.
It can be overwhelming as it is more like visiting a furniture fanatic’s secret collection than an organized furniture shop. But it’s part of the fun.
At every turn, you can find quality and affordable furniture and home accessories. The style is mostly neat and simple that can easily complement any homes.
When sourcing furniture from around the world, Karen has a great and tasteful eye for long-lasting design that are perfect for Hong Kong homes.
Dutch brand Leitmotiv’s Coffee Table bateau (D:60cm) is $1,780. It sells Arina, dubbed the first interior Bluetooth speaker, created by German brand Muemma for $1,880 (sale price now is only $980!).
You can find most of the products on its website but it doesn’t offer a lot of background info. Another reason to visit the store in person.
Be prepared to spend a few hours treasure-hunting here.
Remember to check out: Emoh also works with individual designers from around the world to create special items for Emoh. It also offers a wide range of art prints.
Address: Room 1001, Century Centre, 44-46 Hung To Road, Kwun Tong
Originating from Shanghai, Ziinlife’s Hong Kong showroom is also a co-working space -- which definitely adds a cool unique vibe to the store.
You won’t feel the usual pressure when going to a traditional store.
Ziinlife’s biggest attraction is its transformable and multi-functional furniture – that works perfectly with Hong Kong homes – with a playful twist.
Its Tree Folding Table ($3,899) is a table that can be turned into a console table or a room divider. Its Dali Round Table ($3,849) has an inclination end that would roll up when pushed against a wall.
The showroom is well-curated, showcasing only a handpicked selection of items usually.
Interior designer’s tip: What designers love Ziinlife most is its balance between functionality and playfulness. You may consider furnishing your place with two to three items here, but don’t overdo it.
Address: 5/F, New Media Tower, 82 Hung To Road, Kwun Tong
If you’re looking for solid wood furniture, especially with a Japanese touch, you have to visit How Café.
Spanning over 10,000 square feet, How Café sells Japanese style wood – mostly oak and walnut -- furniture. The quality is high – and so is the price.
A four-door sideboard from Hiromatsu (a Japanese brand for over eight decades) is about $25-30k.
Acme Furniture is another brand it represents. The Japanese brand is known for selling mid-century American style furniture with a nostalgic vibe. Its Windan Feather Sofa with fabric and ash wood costs $31-34k.
Plan it as your last stop: How Café, as its name suggests, features a coffee shop/furniture store. It could be a great place to visit towards the end of your Kwun Tong furniture shopping trip, so you can sit down, rest, and review the pieces you’re interested in.
Address: 11/F, Ming Sang Industrial Building, Hing Yip St., Kwun Tong
5. Tsuen Wan (New Territories)
The younger and more energetic cousin by the same owners and operators of Ulferts of Sweden.
The relatively new brand has a few colorful stores featuring fun Scandinavian home decor.
At.home is great for young professionals and couples who need compact furniture for compact homes.
It’s only slightly more expensive than IKEA – and a good step if you’re looking for furniture of great value other than IKEA.
The trade-off, however, is its quality. The quality is a notch above IKEA but don’t expect anything that can last too long.
“We like that they offer a lot of accessories here that they pair with the furniture so you can easily pick out what works,” says Fion Lee, interior stylist for the Editors Company.
