IFC Mall in Central is one of Hong Kong's classiest shopping centers, anchored by the city's oldest department store: Lane Crawford. And things just got better, with the opening of Lane Crawford Home, the third such store in Hong Kong (The others are in Pacific Place and One Island South.).
The store showcases a terrific range of furniture, home gifts, linens, chinaware and decorative accessories from leading designers around the world. There are more than 155 brands in stock, including Alex Moulton, Baccarat, Dr. Vranjes, Frette, Le Creuset and The Rug Company. This really is the prime one-stop shop for designer home furniture in Hong Kong.

Lane Crawford Home, which is spread across some 7,000 square feet, was designed by Yabu Pushelberg, and it feels like one enormous apartment, divided into distinct areas decorated with truly gorgeous pieces. A special store within a store, The Courtyard, highlights designer collections and new products.
As Hong Kong's leading specialty store, Lane Crawford offers the largest assortment of designer brands in Asia. Founded in 1850, Lane Crawford evolved from a department store to a fashion and lifestyle specialist, and today it's renowned for its unique selection of the newest and best designers from around the world in womenswear, menswear, shoes and accessories, lingerie, jewelry, cosmetics, home and lifestyle.
Maintaining a commitment to anticipate customers’ needs and to continue to innovate, excite and inspire them, Lane Crawford stores merge fashion, art, design and music to create a sensory experience, punctuated with curated spaces of award-winning visual merchandising and specially commissioned exhibitions and collaborations.
One of the main benefits of shopping at Lane Crawford is the personalized service. A dedicated concierge desk can point to the very best of the store's offerings, saving time for busy shoppers. They can also help with restaurant reservations and the like. Lane Crawford's beauty service is similarly expert and professional, while a personal stylist provides the ultimate in shopping experiences.
Lane Crawford was started by Thomas Lane and Ninian Crawford, two Scotsmen of humble background who initially sold ships' biscuits. From very ordinary beginnings, the company has grown to become one of the most respected names in luxury retailing.
The company's success story is typical of Hong Kong, and shopping at Lane Crawford is a highly pleasurable experience. The opening of the new Home Store in IFC marks a new chapter in the company's history, but most importantly, a greater shopping selection for consumers.
