7 reasons why we’re loving this cool furniture company

Sometimes all it takes is just one piece of beautifully crafted and stylish furniture to turn a room’s life around – so here are seven reasons to check out Commune’s furniture collection – your home will thank you for it!

#1 Home Grown Talent

Commune is a local furniture and lifestyle company with an international outlook. It was set up in 2011 and has a Singaporean creative director, Julian Koh, as well as in-house design team that keeps its fingers on the pulse of international trends and ideas.

#2 Variety of styles

Whether you’re a retro head or a mid-century style lover, there are plenty of designs to choose from at Commune. From the modern vintage Bruno collection, crafted in tropical acacia wood and rustic brass-stained metal, to the minimalist Linear collection with military leanings, most tastes are catered for.

#3 Environmentally friendly furniture

The timber used by Commune is sourced from sustainable forests in North America and parts of Asia. Its suppliers follow ethical practices and strict guidelines, so you can be safe in the knowledge there’s minimal impact to the environment when you buy a piece.

#4 Safe for the family

Commune’s emphasis on toxin-free furniture makes it a particularly family-friendly choice. The company ensures its products have insignificant levels of formaldehyde emissions by using higher quality raw materials in the production process. Commune also only uses finishing products that have low lead content, which helps keep both its customers and its craftsmen safe.

 #5 Attention to detail

Each piece of furniture is painstakingly finished, meaning you can leave with a piece of pure quality. Whether they are sanding, sealing, staining or shading, the craftsmen employed by Commune have all undergone intensive training to perfect each stage of the process.

#6 Bond with your furniture

Commune aims to produce furniture that creates an emotional response from its owners. With a carefully curated, unique in-store experience that engages the five physical senses – sight, smell, hearing, touch and taste – the hope is to form a strong emotional engagement as well. “Our design philosophy looks deeply at how we can engage all your senses when you create your home with us. We believe in building memories that last a lifetime,” explains Julian Koh, director of Commune.

#8 Stylish and practical

The furniture not only looks good, but it’s practical too. As homeowners themselves, those behind Commune understand that although you might want some good-looking furniture in your home, it has to be practical too. Each piece is sized to fit comfortably within small city-living spaces.
