Behind its busy routine, Jakarta keeps many places that are not widely known and are worth a visit during your leisure time. One of them is Kemala Home Living. Located on the upper floor of Santa Modern Market, tucked among the food vendors and coffee shops, lies Kemala Home Living that offers handcrafted homeware goods.

Launched on Instagram in 2014, Kemala was born out of owner Dian Elvira Rosa’s fascination for home décor and organising. Teakwood, a tropical hardwood native to Indonesia, remains one of the brand’s specialities from the beginning. A group of local artisans in Central Java handcrafts the said material into understated and chic tableware. Ranging from cake stands, salad bowls, coasters and cutleries, all polished with beeswax to ensure safety for edibles.

Much like the brand’s utilitarian designs, the petite store is decorated most minimally. Humble racks, neatly stacked with their homeware goods, stood out against the shop’s white walls. Moreover, the calming scent of lemongrass and the display of delicate dried flowers (which are for sale and rotated according to what’s in season from an overseas supplier) encapsulate a kind of personality in contrast to other shops at Santa Market. This place is perfect for those who love to collect unique decorations to decorate their home or room.
