Finding the perfect living room furniture that not only looks and feels great, but that also suits your budget, can be a challenge. We turned to the experts at furniture stores, Originals, Kuhl Home and Danish Designs to suggest the best combination of sofas, coffee tables, sideboards and accessories for four different shopper profiles.
#1 Shopper profile
This young couple have just arrived in Singapore with their one year-old baby. They’re not sure how long they’ll be here, so they’ve left the majority of their furniture in their home country. They have just moved into an apartment with a fairly neutral/blank canvas and are looking for key items: sofa, coffee table, side tables and accessories.
Their own style is warm and homely, and they need pieces that are baby-friendly.
* All purchases above $5,000 are entitled to a ten percent discount at Originals.
#2 Shopper profile
This family of four have just moved to a landed house, traditional in style, and are looking for a new sofa and some storage for their accessories and books, as well as a console table if possible. Their two children are aged 8 and 10, so childproof furniture is no longer a necessity.
They love a bit of colour in their home, and are also keen on using accessories to style the house.
#3 Shopper Profile
This is the second stint in Singapore for this older couple, whose children are at university. They’re looking for a coffee table, storage unit and rug (if possible).
They have just moved into an ultra-contemporary apartment, bringing along their large L-shaped sofa in grey linen, and their silver side tables. They like clean lines and simplicity, and dislike clutter.
#4 Shopper Profile
This family has lived in Singapore for ten years and have two teenage children studying here. Their current sofa and coffee table need replacing as their original pieces from home are now breaking down. They live in a black-and-white house, and their living room, in particular, is fairly neutral in colour, with muted tones. There’s a large round jute rug in the middle of the room and an old brown leather armchair that need to be worked around.
* Prices for both Danish Design and Kuhl Home’s products fit within the shoppers’ budgets and are available upon request.
