When it comes to decorating the home in Malaysia, there are so many factors to consider, especially for an expat. Most importantly, you would want something that suits the hot climate, and can stand the test of time.
Purser’s Choice in Bangsar Village is a true hidden gem in the popular shopping mall with its impressive collection of timeless pieces that are not only aesthetically pleasing and tasteful, but functional and practical for the Malaysian climate. They specialise in teak furniture but also have a variety of porcelain lamps, venetian mirrors, batik clothing, and more. Several of their furniture items are recycled or upcycled, and they select items that are of supreme quality. They offer a variety of fine Asian-style home furniture and accessories that are classic yet modern with simplistic designs that can be easily mixed and matched in any home.
One particular item that caught my eye during their recent promotion in the foyer of Bangsar Village was a vibrantly coloured terracotta mosquito coil holder. Dining or relaxing outdoors, especially in the evenings, can be quite tiresome when you have mosquitos biting you all over, so mosquito repellants and coils are a must in Malaysia. The holder hides the coil perfectly in a trendy and cute holder that would look great in any garden or patio.
This is just one example of the unique, pretty, and functional items they have. Gerard Ng, one of the owners, frequently travels to Bali to source for furniture and other home accessories there as they are admirers of the style and quality that can be found there. Other items are sourced from other countries in the region such as Thailand, India, and Myanmar. Many of the unique pieces they find are handcrafted by local artisans and craftsmen. They have even caught the attention of several hotels in Kuala Lumpur that have decorated their premises with items from Purser’s Choice, such as the newly opened Alila Bangsar.
Besides making great additions to the home, their items also make for great gifts for any occasion. Choose from eclectic door stoppers, pretty frames, lamps, table runners, and much more that will make a memorable and unique gift, one you won’t be able to find elsewhere in Malaysia.
The friendly owners can assist you in deciding where a particular item would look best in the home. They can also help you arrange for a delivery overseas. All you need to do is ask! You can be sure that each item in the shop is carefully selected with functionality and the tropical weather in mind. If you’re looking for quality furniture that will always look great and won’t easily crumble after a few months, check out Purser’s Choice. There’s truly something for everyone’s taste.
