It all began several years ago.
While on vacation in Bali, Indonesia – my first time visiting this magical island – I saw a man sitting on the sidewalk. He was absorbed in adding the finishing touches to a chair he’d just made – alone, by hand and from scratch. It wasn’t an unusual sight– handmade wood and rattan furniture are made everywhere in Indonesia, a craft passed on proudly through generations.
The man’s talent and dedication to a single piece of furniture inspired me.
Seeing a gap for these unique pieces in the market, I left my real estate 9-to-5 job to launch Eight Degrees South – an export, online and retail store I co-own with my Jill-of-all-trades best friend, Lola.
In our hands-on, day-to-day running of Eight Degrees South, we oversee the entire process of making our unique furniture and décor pieces – from working with various talented local artisans on the design to the manufacturing and worldwide delivery.
The popularity of our items continues to grow as we stay on top of the ever-changing interior trends.

BRINGING THE BEAUTY OF INDONESIA TO YOU
All our pieces – from the beautiful, heavy tabletop and island slabs to dining chairs, mirrors, candleholders and everything in between – are hand-made by local artisans, one piece at a time.
Generations of men and women are taught by those before them, and skills are honed over decades as they dedicate their time to their craft, working with the utmost respect for natural resources and turning them into beautiful pieces for your home.
We use (often rescued and restored) Teak and Suar wood from Sulawesi and Java, Indonesia and responsibly sourced A-grade Tohiti rattan, hand-harvested and hand-processed in Kalimantan, Indonesia.
