If you’re the type of person who hates having lots of choices and doesn’t care about expert craftsmanship, then you probably won’t like Woody Antique House.
For the rest of us? This 6,000-square-foot showroom in Dempsey Hill is a delightful treasure trove of well-sourced pieces from all around the region – and a must-visit while in Singapore.
“Woody Antique House was established by my father 18 years ago – he had good connections in China and was able to source antique furniture in different parts of China,” shares Ang Wei Chin, who now runs the family business with her husband, Chris Ang.
“Over the years, we’ve branched into Mongolia, Tibet, Thailand, Myanmar, Indonesia and, most recently, have started sourcing Indian Rajasthani furniture.” These days, you can peruse amongst antique furnishings and home accents from all around the region, without having to travel there yourself.
“Every piece is hand-picked and refurbished by skilled carpenters, restoring its original beauty,” says Wei Chin. And, what sets it apart from our importers in SG: Woody Antique House receives shipments every two weeks, ensuring that there’s always something new.
Given that Woody Antique House is constantly refreshing its inventory, it pays to go back, again and again. The store’s latest shipments include the rustic Reborn furniture series – made with 100-percent teak collected from old houses in Indonesia – as well as Rajasthani pieces from India. These coffee tables, cabinets and more are crafted from vintage door and window frames.
In addition, Woody Antique House carries high-quality outdoor furniture from brands like Domus Ventures, and even offers customisation services, such as repainting cabinets or adding of shelves. At the end of the day, Wei Chin says, “We believe in providing good quality furniture and services at affordable prices.”
