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 for wood furnishings.
Fans of elegant, minimalist furniture will love Mountain Teak for its clean and simple proportions. The store’s offerings are made from recycled teak, which is popular in Singapore because its natural oils serve as weatherproofing. (315 Outram Rd)
Make this nifty store your first stop if you have a hankering for authentic Chinese antiques, such as two-door Shandong cabinets, Beijing altar tables and tasteful replicas – all of which are handpicked by owner Constanze Hohmann. (315 Outram Rd)
Weekly shipments mean there’s always something new here. But what can you really expect to find at its 10,000-square-foot showroom, shared with sister store, Woody Teak Collection? (13 Dempsey Rd)
This store delves deep into China’s provinces for Chinese furniture and ornaments. Aside from a gorgeous range of teakwood furniture, WoodFarm carries weatherproof synthetic rattan furniture if you’d like a rustic feel without any fuss. (13 Dempsey Road)
