Crate & Barrel Opens in Singapore's ION: Hurrah!

Style & BeautyPost Category - Style & BeautyStyle & Beauty

crate+barrel_dcgMamas rejoice! US fave Crate & Barrel have opened their doors for the first time in Asia (we’re quite flattered) with a rather fabulous store in Orchard Road’s ION, conveniently just above Marmelade Pantry, so you can be a lady who lunches then shops. Perfect!

One slightly strange thing is that Crate & Barrel have a mini-shop on the 3rd floor, which isn’t internally connected to the main store at all, so it could be possible to wander in and be rather bemused thinking, “is this it?” when actually you need to get up to the 4th floor where the magic really happens.

glassWe were totally bowled over by the huge size of the store. It’s like a proper American size, with an absolutely stunning selection of kitchen gadgets and gizmos. We were slightly over-excited by the huge selection of glass food containers (ideal for making the inside of your fridge gorgeous) and these green leaf salad bowls, but there is so much more: recipe books, wine glasses, pots and pans… It’s really the new best place in Singapore to stock up your kitchen. We’re in love.

We love their white laquer furny (including a desk that could be perfect for Sassy Mama’s new Singapore office!) and were quite taken with their cabinet bars which open up to reveal a selection of cocktail glasses and shakers.

Crate & Barrel, ION Orchard, #03-25 and #04-21, Singapore 238801

Did you know that today is International Migrant Day? Say hi to our foreign labourer friends and do something nice for them!

Labour Arty (labourarty.com) is a young nonprofit that aims to bridge the gap between migrant labourers and locals through art. Drawing similarities through art they hope to solve bigger problems like foreign worker abuse and discrimination.

Join us and Labour Arty in the #YellowHelmetChallenge today to foster friendships between Singaporeans and migrant workers. By taking an Augmented-Reality self-portrait while wearing a yellow safety helmet –  we encourage you to strike up a conversation with foreign construction workers, who constitute part of the 1.4 million total foreign workforce in Singapore. 
Post a photo using the yellow helmet filter (available for download from the #linkinbio) to your Instagram feed and tag it #yellowhelmetchallenge
