Di Legno , which means “wood” in Italian, is the newest furniture store on the block and offers a carefully curated collection of furniture and quality home accessories. One of the featured furniture designers is Cebu-based designer Vito Selma, whose furniture has made its way into former South African president Nelson Mandela’s home. Di Legno also carries paintings and sculptural works by Asian and European artists. 188-6 Tanjong Katong Road.
Designed by Australian owner Majella Skansebakken and made in Indonesia, Ni-Night’s new range of modern teak furniture is simple, functional and made to last. Have your own design idea?
