Bored of standard furnishings and neutral colour palettes? Check out these five homegrown shops for unique and quirky picks instead.
While local brand Iuiga specialises in lifestyle products, such as kitchenware and bedding, they also stock a selection of particularly quirky rugs and carpets in various colour combinations. Whether you’re looking for a sophisticated gradient of blue and silver or an abstract geometric rug, there’s sure to be something for you.
With a focus on modern designs and luxurious finishes, local brand Snow Globe has a wide range of furniture both classic and unusual. Most of their furniture pieces are crafted out of simple yet refined materials, such as stainless steel, wood and velvet fabric, and rounded off with a pop of gold for good measure.
Originally founded as a vintage furniture shop, Journey East has since expanded its collection to also include eco-friendly, reclaimed pieces, as well as their very own collection of furniture. But their vintage picks still remain at the top of the list, the team consistently restoring and reupholstering furnishings to make them look as good as new and give them a new lease of life. If the quirky retro look is your thing, this is the place to shop.
