Hong Kong based furniture company, Forbidden City is the one-stop destination for contemporary Chinese home furnishings and accessories. Founded in 2007, they collaborate with international award winning designers, including Italian creative Luca Trazzi, who has designed for Swatch and Porsche, which allows for a truly unique ‘east-meets-west’ style. Louis Vuitton City Guide obviously agree as they have selected Forbidden City as one of their favourite places in Hong Kong.

Incorporating modern techniques and materials with traditional aesthetics, Forbidden City’s influences come from the furniture of the Ming Dynasty which was famous for its simplicity and elegance. A popular item, the Victory Sideboard, features four high gloss colour ways that create the lucky symbol for Square Victory, also features German engineering and the same high gloss paint finish used on Porsche cars.

Each Forbidden City piece is expertly handcrafted from an original design and exported to over 10 different countries. They also provide an interior decorating service for home and office.
