In the south, Kerobokan is also a great place to search for furniture. Galleries such as Metis are filled with gorgeous antiques, while Jalan Raya Kerobokan has a number of shops specialising in more contemporary furniture: Hobo (Jalan Raya Kerobokan, No.105) has designs from Indonesian artisans, while Magic Fish (Jalan Raya Kerobokan No. 120) features colourful recycled-boat wood furniture made from teak, mahogany and iron. Jalan Mertanadi has a slew of shops selling handcrafted wooden furniture in retro designs, some antiques, others made from recycled wood. Alacazam (Jalan Mertanadi No 31) is happy to customise wooden furniture. This area is also a good place to look for beanbags and hammocks.
Kerobokan divides Seminyak from Denpasar and is a great place for furniture, homewares and ethnic oddities, with much lower prices than you would find in Seminyak.
