Shopping for furniture in Singapore is much better than you may think. Fact is, like nearly everything in Singapore, most furniture is imported. And in most cases, from nearby countries. So range, quality and prices can be more than reasonable. (There is a huge amount of restored and replica antiques readily available, but we will leave that for another day.) So when it comes to hitting the shops, all you need is a little guidance as to where to go for what.
Mostly, furniture shops are spread all over the island, so brace yourself to be pinging from one corner to the other. Once you have your head around that, then you need a plan… and that we have done for you.
Here are our 7 must-see furniture shops in Singapore (and why).
