The Orchard Bali
George Clooney, Liz Hurley, and Richard Branson have all shipped furniture home from this two-tiered showroom in Seminyak. The space is filled with both colonial antiques and contemporary bespoke furniture; pieces such as four-poster beds, made from local teak and mahogany and crafted by native artisans, are among the bestsellers. The shop also carries an array of brightly colored home accessories made with shagreen (stingray skin), sterling silver, and horn; carved wooden mirrors; and hand-painted throw pillows. Coffee tables, end tables, and plantation chairs can all be made to order in the wood and finish of your choice. For custom orders, expect to wait six to eight weeks for delivery.
Tip: Old black and white framed photos of Balinese village life are for sale and make a souvenir worthy of the apartment back in the city.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
