These happy customers share their views on what was the best sofa for them. If you still love your old sofa, but it’s looking a bit tired, you could even get it reupholstered and have a whole new look for your living room. Let’s see what their recommendations for sofas in Singapore are.
Reupholstered sofa from Gallery 278
Diane Friedman, French, daughter Talia, French-American, and helper Emely from the Philippines
“We’ve lived in Singapore for nine years, but we’re leaving this summer for Geneva, Switzerland. I was looking to have a current sofa reupholstered, and Gallery 278 was my first choice. I’ve purchased a lot of furniture from them in the past, including two teak twin beds, a teak queen bed, shoe cabinets, a beautiful blue pouf, rugs, lamps and a big teak mirror. As you can tell, I love this store and I feel like I’m bringing Singapore with me when we move through the furniture I’ve bought! Once I’d booked the upholstery, the team came to pick up the sofa – and they did a great job. They were fast and efficient, and delivered it back in just a few weeks. The material the sofa is upholstered in is velvety soft and a beautiful grey. It gives a lovely cosy feeling to the sofa and the room.
I appreciate the time that the team spends with you in the store, and they’re very kind and helpful. Gallery 278 is my first choice for furniture shopping, and I would definitely recommend them for furniture and upholstery services.”
Automated Sofa from Ritz Houzz
Aw Chung Yi, Singaporean
“We were replacing an old sofa and were on the lookout for a nicely designed piece with an automated feature. We discovered Ritz Houzz in passing and found that they were really service-orientated. Not only that, but their prices are reasonable.
We ended up purchasing a three-seater and two-seater beige-coloured sofa, with automated inclination. We thought it was the best sofa for our house. I like the colour, as it makes my house look brighter, and we chose the Aquaclean material as it’s easy to maintain. We simply use water and vacuum to clean, which is great as we have a lot of children in the house!
We’re definitely happy with our purchase and would look to Ritz Houzz if we needed to buy other home pieces.”
Contemporary sofa from WTP The Furniture Company
Matt Parkey, American
I had recently relocated to Singapore and moved into a new condo, so I needed to furnish it. I was looking for the best sofa – one that had the perfect mix of form and function – it had to be modern with clean lines, and comfortable.
WTP was referred to me, and I found almost everything I needed there to furnish the entire four-bedroom home. In terms of the sofa, I purchased a modern off-white piece with contemporary metal legs. It had the combination of modern aesthetic along with comfort that I was seeking.
I’m 100 percent satisfied with my purchase and would highly recommend the store to others. Shopping with WTP’s Naazli is the best time-saving decision anyone can make! The store is a one stop-shop for both form and function throughout your home, and they also offer flexible financing options to suit your long-term or short-term stay in Singapore.
