Shanghai’s Best Homeware Stores

Top Picks… Designer Decor

LUXE’s long-time shopping faves for homeware, furny and decor include these stylish Shanghai stores…

Hong Merchant. Aka Pia Pierre House, this exclusive, by-appt-only private home is the insider's choice for antiques from Qing-era to deco Shang, plus Chinese and international contempo art exhibitions. A treasure trove of Sino and French-influenced furny and finds, this atmospheric 30s laneway villa offers a more intimate vibe than your typical commercial gallery.

Spin Ceramics. A pale, delicate, luminous glaze adorns these mod table and decor ceramics hand-produced in Jingdezhen, the world’s one-time porcelain capital. Organic shapes and simple lines dominate the elegant, minimalist collection, while non-porcelain covetables include polished wooden trays and lacquer chopsticks. Cut-price factory seconds too.

Banmoo. Local designer Lv Yongzhong is wowing the global scene with his simple, directional woodworking skills, manifested in beautiful, unusual, East-meets-West furny, tableware and sundries. His room-changers embody modern functionality while also being conversation starters. Items can be customised and special ordered.

Shang Xia. Made in China is now desirable with Hermès-backed designer Jiang Qiong Er's exquisite, heritage-influenced home accessories, furny and fash, including teaware, decorative objects and gifts in a Kengo Kuma-conceived boutique. Expect two enchanting floors, plus a level three “experience room” for VIPs. Souvenir shopping? A craftsman wraps delicate tea sets in woven bamboo on site.

 

Asianera. Fetching traddy ceramics reborn in contempo-chic fusion form, Asianera offers beautiful hand-painted motifs given a subtle twist by a western craft aesthetic. There's nowhere better for fine bone china, and you can even design your own.
