Singapore-based vintage furniture store The Rocking Chair up-cycles locally sourced items and one-of-a-kind vintage pieces found in the UK and Denmark, like this old-school cane rocking chair. From matte-black industrial fans with coloured blades to antique Singer sewing machines and a three-seater sofa with black cigar frame – all modified and refurbished in-house – vintage has never looked so hip.
Gallery 278’s latest range of dining chairs made of organic raw solid wood encapsulates clean and timeless designs. The M Chair’s simple linear look is created with different slat sizes, while the Web Chair has artistic spider-web detailing. Both have a slightly slanted back for added comfort.

Soaking Good Time
Bath-time will be the highlight of your day in an Amalfi freestanding bath by Victoria + Albert Baths. The renowned British brand, which makes its range of ultra-modern baths and basins from natural volcanic limestone and high quality resin for a sleek and resilient exterior, is now available to buy across Asia. Each item comes with a 25-year guarantee.
Is that a jerry can or a lamp? The KŌH Lamp, developed by Hong Kong-based home living product company KŌH Concepts, is both. Lighter than a school textbook, this creative lamp can be set up in just three steps and comes in eight different colours. When lit, it exudes a warm glow reminiscent of a campfire.
