Everything Under The Sun is a large, light-filled space dedicated to all things outdoors. Shoppers can pick up tables, chairs, umbrellas, hammocks, waterproof beanbags, recliners, love seats, waterproof lights and bar sets.

'Everything Under The Sun is the leading provider of high-end outdoor furniture and accessories in Hong Kong, Macau and on the mainland,' says Judd Harcombe, director of sales and marketing at parent company Resource Asia Hong Kong.

The company, which represents leading global brands including Gloster, Extremis, Cane-line, Tribu, Tuuci and Woodline, carries more than 20,000 products. It also sources custom outdoor furniture from suppliers in the Asia-Pacific region, particularly from the mainland, Vietnam, the Philippines and Indonesia.

The company prides itself on sticking to its sustainable ideals wherever possible. 'All our furniture is recyclable,' Harcombe says. 'We take the issue seriously and track the sustainability of our products through the production process, although getting the necessary certificates can be difficult for items made on the mainland. We supply many hotels and restaurants, and we find they are also getting more serious about sustainability issues.'

British brand Gloster is popular with commercial and private buyers. It is known for its teak furniture, such as its Axis range, but in recent years, it has embraced alternative and modern materials.

Gloster's new Cloud range features 100 per cent waterproof cushions that are permanently fixed to the chairs. The cushions can be cleaned with a soft detergent and then by spraying with water. The range comes in three colours and is attractive and comfortable enough to be used indoors. Danish brand Cane-line's new Flow range incorporates stainless steel and synthetic weave, leaving a sense of space. It is a versatile product that offers a sofa system that is light to the eye, comfortable and easy to maintain.

Italian brand Emu has launched a range called Intrecci, a complete set of outdoor furniture. Each piece is handmade from the base up and uses cutting-edge materials. Everything Under The Sun is located on the ninth floor of Horizon Plaza, and it also stocks products by Spanish brand Kettal, which is known for its daybeds, South African barbecue brand Weber and Belgian brand Extremis, which produces pieces such as the Sticks outdoor lights. It also stocks Sunweave, a local brand known for its functional designs, quality and affordability.
