Style & BeautyPost Category - Style & BeautyStyle & Beauty

Danish Design Co

Spending hours dragging the kids from store to store looking for furniture (especially when you’ve just settled into a new city or home) is enough to send any well-mannered mama into a bit of a spin! With so many furniture stores around, and with many of them tucked away in questionable looking warehouses, the hardest part is figuring out which stores can offer you the best designs, quality and prices that best suit your home and budget.

Never fear mama! We’re here to help! We spoke to the lovely, Renée Lodens from Travelshopa to bring you our top 10 must-see furniture stores in Singapore. We suggest you set aside a weekend (or two) to visit them all (trust us, you won’t be disappointed) and bring the kiddos too – furniture shopping can be fun!

 

China Collection

Having sourced Chinese antiques (by a team based in China no less) for over 10 years; China Collection is a trusted source of antique furniture and interior accessories. You might just find some contemporary pieces here as well, since their personal philosophy is to meet the needs of individual voices – and at great value for money, it won’t break the bank either mama.

Danish Design

Ethnicraft

No need to leave the home to check this one out mama (bonus!). This online store and private boutique works closely with the Indonesian government to ensure they use only sustainable or recycled wood for all their pieces. With a lovely range of classically designed handmade teak furniture (their solid teak dining tables are a Sassy Mama fave), you’ll even get free delivery and installation services for all orders.

 

Expat Auctions

Expat Auctions

If you’re looking for vintage or second-hand furniture items, Expat Auctions is the place to go. Its weekly auctions sell a stack of second-hand furniture (often from expat families that are downsizing or leaving Singapore), promising customers quality recycled furniture and furnishings at great prices – it’s a good idea to check their website before each auction so you can suss out exactly what you want before you go.

  2. Hello Sassy mamas,

    We recently custom made 6 dining chairs for an expat family of 5, to complement their huge Saur wood table.. They needed the chairs to be solid, durable(scratch resistant), waterproof, no sharp corners, and luxurious of course! The 3 young and adorable children running around our showroom were a bundle of fun. They took our furniture for a test ride and experienced the quality via kids! Bring your kids to our showroom. If our prices are fair and the furniture is still intact, you have a deal.

WE BELIEVE WORKING PARENTS MAKE GREAT PARENTS. A 2015 Harvard Business School study of girls with working moms in 24 countries across the globe found that they grew up to have more successful careers themselves. And another HBS study found in 2018 that kids with two working parents grew up to be *just* as happy as kids with a stay-at-home parent. In short: if working makes you happy, mama, do it! And let go of the #momguilt, because a happy and fulfilled mama = happy kids. Of course, having the flexibility to work near your kids - and for them to see you on the job - has benefits for everybody; whether you're nursing your baby or telling each other about your mornings, we're grateful for a family-friendly co-working space like @trehausco. - Kate McFarlane, Senior Editor⠀

WE BELIEVE IN TEACHING TEAMWORK. Our world and our future are highly unpredictable. Technology is advancing so rapidly that we don't know what our world will look like in ten years let alone 20 years. Our children will also face dramatic environmental and political changes. So how do we prepare them for such an unpredictable future? #Teamwork. Learning to work as part of a team helps develop many social skills such as communication, empathy, patience, tolerance and collaboration. These are the skills that our children will need more than any others. - Emilie De Cannart, Managing Director, Sassy Media Group⠀
