On the move
Chai’s Classic Home Collection is moving to the Tan Boon Liat Building. To celebrate, the store is giving away 75 sets of Christmas lanterns (valued at $150 each) to EL readers. To get your hands on a pair of these stunning handmade wooden and glass lanterns, just be one of the first to visit the new store from 6 December. It’s a perfect way to add Christmas cheer and festive light to your home or outdoor area – simply add an LED light or a real candle to create a warm and inviting Christmas feel.
Store founder Chai Mengyin raved to EL about her new location: “We can’t wait to showcase our new collection of beautiful furniture and home décor accessories in our brighter, larger premises in a prime location. It’s the right time to expand our collection with even more high-quality, timeless and reasonably priced items.”
The lanterns will be given away on a first-come-first-served basis from 6 December at Chai’s new store at #06-04 Tan Boon Liat Building. You can also view products and order online at chaiscollection.com.
The China Collection team spent the summer completely renovating a two-storey pre-war Peranakan shophouse, and the doors have just opened. Pop in and see them at 252 Joo Chiat Road – you can’t miss the stunning Instagram-worthy blue-and-white building. For opening hours and new shipment details, visit facebook.com/ChinaCollection.
