This has been one of Singapore’s favourite furniture stores for many years.

The Originals team is passionate about the environment and committed to its protection, so it ensures all its processes are as clean, energy-saving and renewable as they can be. From beautiful cabinets from India to tables made using reclaimed teak from Java, the possibilities are endless with recycling. The quality of each piece is also assured, as it gets restored to perfection by a team of skilled carpenters.

The big, bright and elegant four-storey WTP showroom is an absolute haven for those who love beautiful design and are looking for something special.
We’ve been praising this homeware store’s short- and long-term furniture rental options for years. But it’s also the homeware and home accessories that we love – from sofas, beds, dining tables and consoles, to beautiful cushions, lamps, paintings, ornaments, sculptures and everything you never actually realised you needed for your home (or as gifts for someone else’s!). The new collection of sideboards and coffee tables, including the Arwana TV sideboard made with recycled teak wood and beautiful slim metal legs, are just some exciting new additions.
What’s trending? Customised upholstered beds in grey velvet, according to WTP’s Naazli. “Grey velvet seems to be the new neutral shade for bedrooms this year!” WTP is also happy to work with you to create a customised piece for the bedroom, or any room. Cheers to having a one-of-a-kind home!
