Over the last few years, River Valley has seen a huge arrival of homewares stores. With the furniture hub of Tan Boon Liat building down the road at Tiong Bahru (315 Outram Road), it is not hard to conclude that the area is building a name for itself as “the place for all things home”.
Our top 9 stores each offer something very different to the next. We list these stores in order of location – starting at Mohamed Sultan Road heading back up River Valley Road towards Ganges Ave/Alexandra Road. We highly recommend you work your way through the list if you are a homemaker or if you have something specific in mind you will probably find that special something at one of these store.
