Kben & Hol
This new Hong Kong-based brand of luxury cushions and textiles is founded by husband and wife duo Dave and Helene. As Helene’s family were refugees from the Khmer Rouge genocide, Kben & Hol is a brand deeply rooted in Cambodian heritage, starting from the name itself: a kben is a traditional Khmer dress, which is paired with a hol silk design, unique to each village. Taking inspiration from the collection of salvaged kbens Helene’s mother kept, the designs are forged from antique Cambodian silk patterns, then woven by native artisans in small Cambodian communities. Utilising brightly coloured silks, colour-blocking techniques and refined materials, the handwoven cotton throws and decorative pillows are eye-catching and modern accents to any room.
Freshly arrived in Hong Kong from Californian shores is the West Coast’s favourite furniture retailer, H.D. Buttercup. Taking up a 15,000-sq.-ft. space in the homewares behemoth that is Horizon Plaza, the brand is already loved for its one-of-a-kind furniture and décor pieces, all curated in Los Angeles, but the Hong Kong store will also feature sections devoted to popular regional brands Timothy Oulton and Sonder Living. Also known for its rare, globally sourced pieces, H.D. Buttercup may also become your new go-to for the finest rugs from all over the world, including traditional and contemporary styles.
