This month we’re talking about furniture: where to buy, where to sell it, how to use it to make your house feel like home. We’ll help you take your home from sad to rad with help from the island’s finest stores. Here are 3 for distinctive statement pieces.
Fred’s true identity is still a mystery, but he knows how to pick a cool piece. There are funky finds like IBride’s Mobilier de Compagnie animal collection (from $143; this red horse table is $3,989),
quality reproductions and furniture and lighting, all created by Fred’s merry design bandits. 181 Orchard Rd.
Inspired by her wanderlust, owner Denise Kaur fills her store with an eclectic mix of accent pieces. The new Castaway collection features handcrafted items made from natural raw materials, such as these Angel Wing planters ($549). 65 Ubi Rd 1.
The younger sister of Crate & Barrel (pg. 25), CB2 takes home furnishings to the next level with lots of fun and colour. Singapore’s no stranger to tight square footage, which is why CB2’s modern design solutions are great for compact living spaces. From furniture and dining, to storage, accessories and kitchenware, CB2 has something for everyone. Who could resist cute knick-knacks, like this five-minute turquoise hourglass with pretty teal sand ($9.95) or blinged-out gold waste can ($129.95)? 178A Orchard Rd.
