The Ap Lei Chau-based decor store Eclectic Cool carries exclusive furniture pieces from around the world. Founder Joanne Pereiro aims to create a unique consumer experience, allowing the store's clientele to have "a fabulous overseas shopping trip...without the hassle of jetlag or the worry of how you'll get it home."
Side tables, ottomans and dining room tables that borrow from the styles of Instanbul, Paris, London and Sydney are the focus of Pereiro's venture. The Sydney native was inspired by her current residency in Hong Kong, enabling her to appreciate the beauty of foreign furnishing.
The range of prices maintained by Eclectic Cool make the products quite feasible for a slew of customers. While specialty products are slightly more expensive, staple household goods are fairly marked.
