Affordable furniture in Singapore is not a myth – and it doesn’t have to mean cheaply made furniture or poor quality! It just means doing your furniture shopping and finding reasonably priced pieces that last the distance. Here are some great ideas from affordable furniture stores in Singapore.
Just Anthony is among the most affordable furniture stores in Singapore, and their sales makes it even more so! Specialising in Chinese antique furniture, the store stocks an impressive selection of both reproduction and antique pieces. You’ll also find oriental-style accessories include lamps and lights, art, wall hangings, screens and room dividers. We always love popping in to see what’s new.
Get your hands on one of the long chest of drawers (priced at an all-year low of $950), available in distressed teal and mint. They can be used in the bedroom, as a TV console with storage, a living room sideboard or even in the hallway.
We also love the hand-painted small wooden round drums ($100 each), and the ever-popular ceramic drum stools ($100-$220). They come in a variety of colours and designs, and are ideal décor pieces or as a side table in your living or bedroom.
Owner Danielle recommends keeping an eye online for other offers. “We have an on-going bundle promotion for lamps, which is also available online. Check out our sales page where many of the clearance pieces are listed.”

Originals is one of those affordable furniture stores that bears in mind the different needs and budgets of customers and curates its range accordingly. On top of this, it extends a 10 percent VIP discount to any customer who spends $5,000 in single or multiple receipts!
You can get your hands on a gorgeous Copal fabric sofa for $12,880, solid oak Torsion dining table for $1,240, or solid oak Air bedframe for $2,025. There’s also the Rose outdoor lounge chair for $580. All products are beautifully crafted and designed to last.
Originals’ Geri Murphy points out that affordable furniture shopping doesn’t mean skimping on quality in favour of something cheap. “It will only need replacing in a short space of time,” she says. “If you’re on a tight budget, buy fewer quality pieces; don’t fill your space with ‘cheaper’ products. Also, the accent items don’t need be expensive. We often help customers to make the most of their homes by working with the items they already have and treasure, adding either a statement piece or necessary items (beds, sofas, dining table, and chairs) that will stand the test of time.”
