Chinatique – Prahran

Business Owner:  Richard Leong
“I first opened in 1985 and have had this business for 30 years. I always liked nice things, especially for home decoration. We have supplied to hotels and interior designers both interstate and local.  We have been featured in Home Beautiful and Vogue Living and that is how people came to know us.  The City of Stonnington Mayor, Melinda Sehr came over here for many years to do her shopping and this was on the cover of their magazine.”

High Point
“We supplied to the Windsor hotel. I had a phone call from Canberra that the interior designer was coming to see me. We made and appointment and she came to the shop.   She came back with again with a few people to organise the plates, bowls, vases and lamps to purchase for the hotel. That was a very surprising big thing.”

Low Point
“We have managed to get through the bad times, but they are never good.”

Business Tip
“Take the risk, plan carefully and have a vision. Everything is not 100% right all the time, take the good and the bad and do a risk management calculation.”
