Where are the best places to buy furniture in Singapore? So glad you asked!
In this Issue 293 of The Finder, we highlight 10 “Hot Home ‘Hoods” renowned for their fab furniture finds. But, more than just helping you outfit your home in style, we also give great tips on how to make relocation go more smoothly plus how to locate your perfect place to live. (For temporary digs, check out our helpful Serviced Apartments Reports here, here and here!)

In her bi-monthly letter to readers, Editor-in-Chief Sara quotes from Thomas Wolfe’s 1940 novel You Can’t Go Home Again – noting that these lines resonate for her as an expat in SG: “Make your mistakes, take your chances, look silly, but keep on going. Don’t freeze up.”
Then, she continues, “That’s what I hope this Issue 293 of The Finder inspires you to do: Dive into Singapore life – and don’t look back.
“Given that many expatriates move here for two- or three-year assignments, it’s all the more reason not to waste time (or money!) on stuff that doesn’t make you happy or help you live well. Take it from me, a penthouse condo will not solve all of your problems, nor will a gym membership you never use.
“This is why you’ll see stories in this issue such as “How to Find Your New Home”, “No Gym Required!” and our essential #sglifehacks.”
Issue 293’s Finder Insiders were chosen for their knowledge of all things home, including Home & Decor Editor Young Lim, Nina Beale of chic furniture store Bungalow 55, Rhonda Wong – the brains behind the Ohmyhome blog, seasoned expat and fitspo icon Natalie Dau of The Daily Escape, Rodex Movers‘ Roger Kweh and – last but not least! Linda Preece, whose own photo of her art print graces our magazine cover.
From ways to pay less on rent to how to avoid moving into a less-than-ideal location, this issue’s #sglifehacks are all home-related. Bonus: sites that “sell” furniture for free!
Thanks to Singapore’s endless summers, impressive public parks and other no-cost fitness initiatives, there’s no need to pay to exercise. Hurray! Read the online story here.
