If you like your modern design furniture with a side order of Salted Egg Croissants, hand-brewed coffee and live music, then you’re in luck. For one day only on Saturday 16 April from 11am – 7pm at Paragon, Level 4, you’ll be able to get a taster of Scandi lifestyle at the first-ever BoConcept Marketplace event. The Danish furniture brand BoConcept will play host to some of Singapore’s trendiest local producers of food, juice, apparel and lifestyle accessories. So, who’ll be in residence for the day?
Arrive with an appetite! Curbside Cafe will be serving up a trio of sandwiches and savoury waffles, Maras’ sous vide ribeye beef bowl is a must-try, and Bridge’s famed Salted Egg Croissants (oozing golden custard – yum!) and Truffle Honey Toast practically warrant seconds and thirds.
Get your sugar high any which way you like it with Island Creamery, Singapore’s much-loved ice-cream parlour, scooping up popular local flavours such as Cookies & Cream, Coconut Swirl and Teh Tarik, and blogger Jessica Loh (better known as Shiberty from Shiberty Bakes) flaunting her exquisite pastel-coloured macaroons in flavours including red velvet, earl grey, ferrero rocher and matcha. Plus, bespoke dessert caterer Sae Takagi from Amiral Patissiere will be in-store showing us how to make her famed eclairs (which you can gobble up once made, of course).
Quench your thirst with top-class raw, organic cold-pressed juices from HICJUICE, followed by a caffeine hit or two from Smitten Specialty Coffee & Tea. Watch baristas demonstrating hand-brewing coffee methods that’ll no doubt see you snapping up a home-brewing set for yourself. Good morning espresso!
There are lifestyle brands aplenty in the line-up, too. Nose impressive terrariums by Green Banana and personalised projects from Singapore-based craft studio Operation Overhaul, take in a floral workshop with artisanal boutique One Olive, sample all-natural, coconut oil-based gourmet skincare from Katfood and MBWLaboratories’ customisable body and health care apothecary products crafted using essential oils, and update your capsule wardrobe with contemporary menswear essentials from Sifr.
Flick through the gallery for a sneak peek at each of the BoConcept Marketplace vendors.
Add live music performances by acoustic guitarist and hippie folk songwriter Amanda Tee and BoConcept’s signature affordable contemporary furniture and home furnishings, and we reckon this is one design event that’s worth skipping Junior’s football match for. And, have we mentioned that it’s totally free? RSVP now and see you Saturday!
