That Lovely Find

One of the many things I love about traveling (not just abroad, but locally as well) is exploring the neighborhood for nice "hole-in-the-wall" places--stores, restaurants, art galleries...well you get the idea. In a culture where the mall is where you have it all, there are still those rare moments when you want to seek something different or "traditional" such as walking around a corner of a street, spotting an old building with a small shop on the first few floors and get yourself be mind blown as you enter out of innate human curiosity. This was the case during our much recent trip from Hong Kong.  

In a seemingly old building around a corner near Forever 21 in Causeway Bay, I've been seeing this home decor store, Homeless, but it was only during our previous trip that we were able to explore the store. Lo and behold is a retail sanctuary of Scandinavian goodness--from chairs, tables, lightings to random home decor knick knacks, it's a visual feast for those who like hip, vintage and bohemian-looking things. Of course some of the items aren't exactly thrift-shop cheap, but they are definitely worth looking and considering at. I've discovered that some of the items from this store are also the ones displayed at Lane Crawford, though if they came from Homeless is beyond my knowing. 

They also have another store (their flagship store actually) in Central, Hong Kong. Check it out especially if you're fond of Scandinavian designs or our local Dimensione store. I've also been posting other photos from my recent trip in my Instagram (or as cynics would call it, hipstagram) account. Follow me @mikpangilinan. Enjoy the photo-heavy post ;)
