When designers Vincent Lim and Elaine Lu decided to relocate to Hong Kong from New York, they did so with a project in mind: an apartment that had been in Lim's family for years. The closed-off space called for new life, and the couple — founders of the namesake firm Lim+Lu — used the opportunity to leave their own mark on the property. They wanted the space to be flexible, colorful, and full of natural light, so they replaced the walls that closed off the rooms with glass-and-steel sliding doors. The airy, open feel of the home is reminiscent of a loft, but Lim+Lu aimed to avoid what they refer to as a "now ubiquitous New York industrial style." Instead, the duo emphasized saturated walls with patterned tiles and bold furniture, making for an aesthetic that's sleek, but also fun. "The furniture was a slow process [because] we didn't want to clutter the space," Lu said. "We moved in first without any furniture and we designed and curated the furniture based on our needs." At 1,200 square feet, the revamped address doubles as a showroom for their newly-launched furniture pieces, too.
