In this paradise we called home, lots of people came in search of inspiration. They came back to nature to find materials, shapes and one-of-a-kind items that they can transform into functional objects. They build everything here and display it for the world to see. Yes, in this article, we pay homage to the interior or furniture brand that started in Bali. These brands explore the richness that is Indonesia through their products and celebrate it with their amazing design. You should pay attention to these brands.
Their heart is with Indonesia and we can see it in every product they design. The brand that recently opened their first Bali showroom in Jl. Mertanadi, Seminyak (Next to Paletas Wey) sell various wooden furniture and home accessories. They play with natural rough materials sourced throughout Indonesia, from cotton, wood, rope, bamboo, leather, and transform it into beautiful products with high-quality traditional craftsmanship. Their team had designed custom furniture for hotels and properties in Japan, Singapore, and Bali. When you heads up to their showroom, you can find lots of interesting items, as well as see their creative process in creating the perfect product for any space you desire. We love their throw pillows that play with warm colors and unique prints. They also have the leaves-inspired furniture, such as The Daun Coffee, which is a wooden leaf-shaped side table with a beautiful curve resembling a leaf. If you’re looking for a statement piece, we recommend their collection of lamp shades that will add warm ambiance to your space. Our favorites are the Lombok lamp shade and the Candel shade.
Taking inspiration from mother’s nature, IBUKU has been a major player in Bali’s design world with their amazing takes on bamboo. They are the people behind Green Village, the amazing structure that are made entirely out of bamboo. Now, they are launching IBUKU homes so that we can have a part of nature in the comfort of our own home. IBUKU homes product is simple yet unique, with the goal to express the bamboo’s strength and beauty. Their product range from simple shelves to elaborate curving seating that will define the space. The design will shine juxtaposed against various palettes. It will match your home no matter what the style is. IBUKU products will bring warmth to your home as well as a peace of mind knowing that your furniture is made from a sustainable material and is designed to last.
When asked what does Maja means, Diane Rhyu Taylor simply says “I know it’s a type of Indonesian fruit. I just wanted something that sounds Indonesian.” This is perfect because Maja is Indonesia. Maja is a furniture collection dedicated to the exquisite textures and natural materials of Indonesia. It combines locally crafted materials with contemporary design so that it exudes elegance, high quality and timelessness. With a showroom in Jl. Danau Tamblingan, Sanur, Maja showcases a wide range of products, including chairs, sofas, ottomans, tables, pendant lamps and many more. They uses natural handcrafted materials, such as hand-blown glass, hammered copper and artisanal wood finishes. Last May, during the TEDxUbud event, they previewed their latest collection, including the Kanoe Tray Table, Madu table and Meera Table.
The word Warisan means inheritance or legacy. It is something you passed down from generation to generation. Established in 1989, the brand Warisan has grown from purveyor of high quality antiques to producing their own design. Started in Bali, now they have six showrooms around the world. Not bad at all. With more than 400 craftsmen, designer and project manager, and the finest materials, Warisan offers a range of furniture that can make any house different from the rest. Their indoor models are manufactured using teak and mahogany wood from Indonesian government plantation. We love their origins series that uses raw wood with its various shapes and size and then build their product around the original wood. There’s something romantic about it, and will surely make that product one of a kind.
