Suzy Drawer $21,500


Great design to me should tick three boxes: It must make you feel good, be functional and have a beautiful aesthetic that never dates,” shares Caroline Olah, founder of designer furniture brand Reddie.


It’s three boxes Olah confidently ticks with her timeless, light-hearted and functional collection of furniture, including dining tables, block stools, stackable dining chairs, coffee tables and benches, all crafted in beautiful materials in classic forms - with just the right touch of retro. What’s partially impressive about the collection is the quality. Made by a team of craftsmen in Central Java Indonesia who specialise in Danish woodworking, each piece is made using the world’s most premium wood - solid teak - paired with European marbles, and promises to last a lifetime.






As Hong Kong’s typically bite-sized abodes can make decorating feel like a challenge, we ask the interior designer and former local resident what tricks she has up her sleeve when it comes to making a modest home look larger.


 “Choose a dining table or sofa that is your ideal size and then work from there. If your place is small, don’t shy away from picking a larger statement piece. Oversized mirrors are also another way to double your room size. I also find having a pared back space makes you feel calmer, and gives your mind room to breathe, so pick a few great pieces and keep out the clutter. Additionally, I love large tropical plants. When you’re unable to have a large backyard, they help clean the air and bring an outdoor feel to your home.”



Suzy Laptop Table $2,500



As for what Reddie pieces work best for a home with limited space? “The Vinny Media unit is great for small flats, as it has so much storage, and can hide all the ugly electronic equipment. The doors are perforated so you can change the channel whilst closed. The Suzy laptop table also works well because you can place it anywhere and work from any part of your home. It’s light and easy to move, and you can use it to eat or work on,” shares Olah.

Fortnum & Mason Pop-up Stores set-up:

Fortnum & Mason’s gourmet selection:


This year, Fortnum & Mason and Lane Crawford join hands to transport the authentic Fortnum experience to the pop-up stores at New Town Plaza and Cityplaza beyond Lane Crawford stores. From now until Feb 28, 2018, customer can shop Fortnum & Mason’s much-loved gourmet selection of signature tea, hampers, biscuits, confectioneries, and Christmas limited editions featuring artwork by renowned designer Kristjana S Williams. 



From its legendary premises in the heart of London’s Piccadilly, Fortnum & Mason has been serving its loyal customers, including the British royal family, for more than 300 years. Known around the world for its peerless selection of fine teas, sweet treats and artisanal preserves, Fortnum & Mason comes into its own at Christmas time, when it is a hotspot for those looking to stock up on its signature traditional foodstuffs and gifts.


Hampers are one of the most popular Christmas gifts today, but their history stretches back centuries. In its earliest days, Fortnum & Mason created hampers for its well-heeled customers when they were leaving London for their country estates, and the tradition of offering products that are the perfect filling for any gift hamper continues to this day. From moreish biscuits such as dark chocolate and macadamia nut or Christmas Teatime, to festive Christmas sponge pudding set, the brand perfectly captures the taste of Christmas. 


Lovely Little Things


The big presents under the tree might grab most of the pre-Christmas attention, but well-chosen stocking fillers are a long-held tradition that shows just as much care. For those little surprises, it’s hard to go wrong with sweet treats, and Fortnum & Mason offers a selection of exquisite chocolates that are perfect for children which come in beautifully designed packaging. The brand also offers an intriguing selection of biscuit flavours presented in delightful traditional souvenir tins.


The Perfect Pour


There are few British traditions as widely celebrated or as deeply held as the classic cup of tea, and nowhere caters to the discerning tea drinker more than Fortnum & Mason. As well as its wide range of signature loose and bagged teas, from Darjeeling Broken Orange and Breakfast Blend to Green Ginger and Camomile Infusion, the brand also offers special-edition packs that make the perfect gift, including the Flowering Heart Tea Wooden Box and the Queen’s Blend Tea, which commemorates the record-breaking reign of Queen Elizabeth II with a blend of Kenyan, Rwandan and Assam teas. As well as the teas themselves, Fortnum & Mason is also renowned for its teaware, including ornate tea strainers, cups and saucers, sugar bowls, serving trays and, of course, teapots.

From August to September, “The Makers” series invites customers to experience the finest in Chinese artisanal design at Lane Crawford ifc mall and Pacific Place home store. Join us over cocktails as we discover the intricacy of the production journey with the designers and brand representatives.

X+Q Art hopes to deliver a sincere wish of happiness, love and affection through their works. Each piece is completely handcrafted from beginning to end; the X+Q collections are made in limited quantities. Take a closer look at the soulful expression of Baby Bunny; it will make you pause and smile; while the “Ai Mei • Midsummer” can melt your heart with her angelic face. The “Ai Mei • Midsummer” series is Le Méridien Hotels & Resorts’ s first-of-its-kind collaboration with Chinese art collective X+Q Art. 

The initiative shares a passion for diversity, celebrating the unique sense of place of the Le Méridien hotels across Greater China. Each Midsummer girl represents a dynamic location of Le Méridien hotels in China with its own specially designed costume inspired by local places. 

“With its passion for culture, this collaboration is an ideal platform to share our inspirations and aspirations for art, bringing them to an audience that appreciates modern aesthetics and the emotions they evoke,” said Qu Guangci, co-founder, X+Q Art. “Our work with Le Méridien embodies our joint appreciation of different destinations and diverse local cultures, as well as the magic that lies behind the discovery of new places in greater depth.” 
The contemporary Chinese sculptor Qu Guangci will be joining the cocktail at Lane Crawford ifc mall on Aug 18 evening. Explore Qu’s sculpture language and his post-political expression techniques from the sculptures. He has an amazing ability to combine tradition and modern, culture and design, all at the right balance.

Shang Xia


Dedicated to the discovery of graceful living, Shanghai-based label Shang Xia, merges contemporary design and Chinese culture to create home accents. Bamboo is a part of many traditions and livelihoods. To preserve the natural beauty of bamboo, Shang Xia reinvents Zhejiang’s most remarkable handicraft: bamboo marquetry with modern technology. Inspired by the graceful lines of Ming Dynasty furniture, the ‘Twilight’ collection includes cherry wood jewellery boxes and round trays, inlaid with delicate carved bamboo. The created graphic lattice pattern is an innovation in the marquetry tradition, and Shang Xia logo is combined with the traditional sayagata pattern to form a unique, delicate yet durable design. This new collection continues to represent the flow of energy from the past, present and future.

The Fabrick Lab


Devoted to the search for experimental textile surfaces and materials for bespoke luxury environment, The Fabrick Lab expands the boundaries of textile, connecting local villagers in Guizhou in the Southern China to co-design lifestyle products. 


Known as the ‘techno fairy’ by Elle Deco and a materialologist, The Fabrick Lab designer and founder, Elaine Ng designed an efficient work model with them to achieve skill exchange and helped Guizhou weavers to create a sustainable way of living through making craft. Batik wooden stool, silk scarf and handwoven cushion are handcrafted pieces, using traditional tools with generations of experience. From extracting indigo dye from plants to creating a naturally water repellent cotton surface, the local villagers take every inspiration from nature. The Fabrick Lab treasures traditional Chinese culture and reinvents home accents with a sense of continuity. The production of hand-dyed batik wooden stool shows that batik making technique can be applied to hard surface, which Guizhou artisans have never done before. 


Explore the exquisite handmade crafts of The Fabrick Lab. Elaine will share her creative inspiration on the use of experimental materials at Lane Crawford Pacific Place home store on September 16. Her work has been exhibited at museums like V&A in London and Textile Museum in Toronto; while her art and design research has been widely featured. Her distinctive design approach has proved inspirational to many.
