While visiting friends in Hong Kong, Caroline Mackersey, the founder of In My House, found it was a challenge to find great quality and well designed furniture pieces at a reasonable price. With her experience in sales and marketing for one of Australia’s leading homewares importers, Caroline used her design connections to fill this gap in the Hong Kong market, launching In My House, an online furniture store in June.
In My House carries a range of designer furniture from Australia and the UK as well as sourcing eclectic individual pieces from exotic locales, such as India and Turkey. Tables, chairs and sofas are well represented in the store, as well as smaller decorator pieces such as rugs and homewares.
Leading furniture designers such as the hot Australian brand, Mark Tuckey, produce custom made furniture for In My House, specifically tailored to the Hong Kong market. The furniture has been hand picked by Caroline to fit in Hong Kong’s tiny lifts and stairwells so that there are no nasty surprises.
Another of Caroline’s design coups includes the range by British brand, Another Country. Made from FSC sustainable oak, Another Country’s pared back aesthetic suits the Hong Kong lifestyle brilliantly. Designed by founder, Paul de Kwart, one of the founding publishers of interiors bible, Wallpaper magazine, the construction of the pieces are inspired by traditional Shaker, English and Japanese methods. The legs screw on and can be removed for ease of transportation in Hong Kong’s fluid housing market.
Caroline has also taken the hassle out of organizing shipping for the pieces. Her furniture is shipped by air freight door to door at a standardized price. The furniture is priced similarly to retail pricing in Australia and the UK, so you can be assured of great value. This site is a great idea if you are moving to Hong Kong. As most pieces take 6 to 8 weeks to deliver, you can order in your home country to be delivered straight to your new home in Hong Kong!
