Bigger & Better
Scanteak is going from strength to strength with its expansion. The furniture company is opening its 11th showroom in Singapore (#B1-56/56A United Square) and has added a gallery for its Scankomfort mattress brand in its current Toh Guan showroom. The Toh Guan space (8 Boon Lay Way) has recently been revamped with a whole new look and experience for customers, including a mattress gallery located on level 2 of the showroom, with a dedicated customer area for trying out mattresses.
Island Living has just launched its extensive new range of outdoor furniture, from functional and classic outdoor teak dining tables and chairs, to on-trend chairs and sofas that are designed to take a battering from the Singapore elements. The new range of cement furniture, including dining tables, coffee tables and benches, alongside the store’s new pots and planters, are suitable for both indoor and outdoor spaces. They come in a great range of colours and sizes whether you’re looking to maximise the functionality of a smaller space or fill out a luxuriously spacious patio.

Lighting is such a simple yet effective way to elevate a room’s aesthetic, so the new collection of lights arriving at Sol Luminaire in April will be welcome news to anyone looking to lift their home décor. Brands joining the collection include Forma Rosa, designed in New York City and handcrafted in Peru, and Czech brand SkLO (pictured). The glass lights are handblown and range from pendant lights to wall and table lamps.
Sol Luminaire is also renovating its galleries at 395 Guillemard Road, with the new look to be completed in June.
Never shy of a new launch, Ikea has added home accessories range Varmblixt to its collection. Designed in collaboration with Netherlands-based Sabine Marcelis, the pieces are inspired by light and include wall and mirror lamps, and glass bowls. There are also plenty of new products to help organise that clutter at home, and décor pieces and accessories in unique and quirky styles, including the cushions pictured here.

Rentals on the Rise

Rental prices rose steadily month by month throughout 2022, starting at 0.5 percent in January to three percent by December. Central region rental rose the highest, at 3.9 percent in December. Despite the price hike, the number of units rented also rose by year end, from 5,013 in November to 6,345 in December.
