Housewares

Thai-made houseware items can add a colourful, funky or elegant accent to a home, depending on your taste. In addition to pieces made in a traditional Thai designs, every season brings a new stock of inventive styles as Thailand's designers aim to compete at a global level. One could easily furnish an entire home with Thai housewares -- cutlery, chopsticks, pillows, placemats, lamps, incense holders, tablecloths, wall hangings, bathroom accessories, bedding, dishes, glassware, vases, functional items such as newspaper racks and bookends, and much more, are sold in a bewildering array of styles and materials.

All the furniture shops listed above also carry houseware goods, which are also found at specialty shops within the department stores. Street vendors in Patong, other resort areas and Phuket City sell smaller items that are easy to carry and pack. Canal Village at Laguna Phuket, and the shops just outside Laguna's entrance, are good places to pick up decorative accessories. Jim Thompson has two home furnishing factory sales outlets in Phuket, at Canal Village in Laguna Phuket and The Courtyard on Chao Fa Nok Rd, that sell fantastic, luxurious fabrics.
