Furniture and Decoration Services

If you have left most of your furniture behind or would like to use the opportunity to re-decorate, you will need to find a good furniture retail or rental outlet very soon after you arrive here. Thankfully,  you'll find that you'll be spoilt for choice when it comes to furnishing your home in Singapore. From contemporary to antique to knockdowns, there's just about every type of furniture you will possibly need for any style of decor you can think of.

Indonesian

Indonesian Furniture is sometimes custom-made from recycled aged or plantation teakwood. There are some beautiful artifacts and furniture galleries in Singapore. You can find a large product range, which includes tables, desks, chairs, beds, cabinets, benches and outdoor furniture as well as handicrafts, artifacts and home accessories. Sometimes you may be very lucky to run into a factory sale, which offers you even better prices! Enjoy the Singaporean lifestyle in your garden or house even more with ethnic and rustic Indonesian furniture, many of which come with unique and intricate carvings. Indonesian wood is dried at a particular way so that the wood can stand the changes of humidity around the world.

Antique/Chinese

As with buying any kind of antiques, be careful when splashing out. Make sure you deal with reputable retailers, read up on all the available literature, and ask for a certificate of antiquity and receipts, which you may need for customs when you return to your home country. antique2.jpg (25357 bytes)

Tanglin Shopping Centre
19 Tanglin Road
A good place to shop for furniture. Several shops on the third and forth floors sell different types of furniture, from Indonesian to Chinese antique to even rattan. A plus point are the excellent deli's found in this building where you can recover from all that shopping.

Contemporary

   Park Mall
9 Penang Road (opposite Dhoby Ghaut MRT Station)
The furniture shops at Park Mall are decidedly posh and upmarket, with prices to fit that description. Here you can find designer names like Philip Stark, bar stools with 4-digit price tags, as well as an entire shop selling nothing but outrageously designed sofa-beds. If you have a budget to match your taste, then the shops on both the first and second floors of this shopping mall will be right up your alley. If not, then window shopping and looking at all the designer furniture is quite fun as well.

Plaza Furniture Mall
7500D Beach Road (Next to the Plaza Hotel)
In keeping with the mega-store trend in Singapore, the Plaza Furniture Mall is a humongous collection of dozens of furniture and furnishing retailers selling pretty run-of-the-mill stuff.

Stamford House
39 Stamford Road (next to the MPH Building)
The new kid on the block, Stamford House is an alternative to Park Mall if you're looking for more upmarket and expensive furniture.
