our story



More than your design store.

Starchie is a platform for creative and innovative designers in Asia to collaborate, showcase and market their design.
We currently carry contemporary living and lifestyle brands from Southeast Asia and is looking to grow our network of designer brands towards the wider continent of Asia.

At Starchie, you get ‘insider info’ where designers recommend their local colleagues and inspiration that they think are great. This enables us, and you, to uncover hidden talents around the region.

But ...

We are not simply interested in selling you good design.
We are also interested to tell stories behind the products and the people.
Starchie is more than your design store. For us, it is all about the people.
That is why we are here - to support, empower and showcase local creative talents in your region. 

STARCHIE aims to give you the 'insider info' and a justified pride of buying Asian.




Starchie is founded by Silvia Tasani, an Australian trained architect with a passion for good design. It all started when she moved from Australia to Asia and had no idea where to start finding local design. She started asking designer friends to recommend other designer friends.

If only we can provide that information and more ...

Silvia loves unique beautiful things that are well thought out and executed.
A philosophy that is emulated in the considered curation of Starchie.
