Online shopping in Singapore, including furniture, home décor & homeware
Originals – fab home décor online
Not only are the items stocked at Originals beautiful, but the store also strives to make a positive impact by caring about how each product looks, lasts and makes people feel. It doesn’t just sell furniture; it sources, makes and customises it too. Some pieces here are old, and some are new. The store isn’t defined by one product or product range. Rather, it prides itself on careful sourcing, workmanship and curation.
What should we look for when home shopping online?
“Look for unique, authentic pieces that emphasise the importance of quality craftsmanship, product origin and materials. We’re finding that people are becoming increasingly conscious of these details when searching online for unique homeware at Originals. These details should also be easily available to view when you’re browsing a site.”
Anything new with your online shopping this year?
“Our website now boasts an enhanced online home shopping experience. You can easily browse our extended collections online, save favourites, and view the necessary details including dimensions, quality and materials to ensure your online purchase was the best possible decision.
“We now have even more contemporary Scandinavian designs on offer, and a wide range of cushions and accessories sourced globally. Customers can choose from a wide range of sofa fabrics; we also carry everything from affordable blended fabrics to Libeco linens for our sofas. There’s more indoor furniture suitable for apartments to choose from too.”
What are some home décor trends you’re seeing in 2022?
“Décor made with natural textures and materials, such as jute and rattan, continue to prove popular; think clash-proof, natural materials that complement even the most vibrant or neutral spaces. Unsustainable materials and methods are now definitely taking a back seat in soft-furnishing design.”
The Cinnamon Room – online shopping including new rugs
You may already know The Cinnamon Room’s charming shophouse store in Holland Village, but you can also do your Singapore shopping online. There’s an eclectic collections of home décor and gifts and award-winning contemporary rugs, carpets and unique home décor accessories.

What should we look for when online shopping for home décor?
“In choosing home décor online, especially in the case of rugs, it’s essential to check the dimensions of your chosen rug to make sure the scale is right in relation to your room and décor. Our online store offers lots of valuable advice about rug placements to help you make the right choice from our standard stock sizes available online. We also have an extensive library of inspirational images of our contemporary hide rugs in situ to help you visualise the rugs in a room setting.”
Are you launching anything new online this year?
“In addition to our popular hide, dhurrie and jute rugs that you can find online, we’re thrilled to have added a new range of weatherproof outdoor rugs and bath mats. This new collection is particularly special as they’re made from recycled plastic bottles rescued from landfills to create a special soft yarn that’s handwoven into our outdoor rugs! This range of sustainably produced and environmentally friendly outdoor rugs feels soft and comfortable on the feet, like a wool yarn. But being made from recycled plastic, dries quickly and remains mould-free in this tropical climate.”
What are some home décor trends for this year?
“People are making more conscious decisions in their home décor purchases. They’re looking for unique pieces that are more sustainably sourced and which have a better impact on our planet. As we spend more time at home, it’s more important than ever that they make us happy and we surround ourselves with décor that’s thoughtfully made. We have seen clients really appreciating artisan craftsmanship of unique designed ranges that are produced on a smaller scale with more environmentally friendly techniques. The stories behind the sustainable production of our outdoor rug range and Singapore mahogany tables and serving platters have been very well received, proving that this trend towards sustainable living is definitely a trend to stay!”
Césama – home shopping online for nature-inspired pieces
What tips can you pass on to anyone buying home décor online?
“When buying furniture in Singapore online, try to invest in quality; high-quality handcrafted pieces with a unique character will infuse more joy into your space in the long term. Make sure you buy pieces that fit your style and can easily be dressed up or down seasonally. We love our siji lanterns for this reason; they go well as a day-to-day plain object, as candle holders to set the softer mood or Christmas scene, and as a flower base.
“Also, make a conscious decision by buying from small local businesses. Making an environmentally friendly decision is definitely the way to go! In the future, when moving back home or abroad, it will always be that special piece of home décor you got from your Singapore online shopping.”
Are you launching anything new this year?
“It’s an exciting year as we’re going to have more stockists (keep an eye on our IG page @cesamahome!) as well as launching a few new furniture pieces. Our chic pendant shades, mirrors, standing lamps and coffee tables are just out online and ready to beautify your home! Besides the new collection, we’re also accepting made-to-order furniture pieces alongside our brand concept: natural solid materials. We think a home should be able to communicate your creativity and lifestyle, and we love being involved in your wildest home décor dreams!”
What home trends are you seeing for 2022?
“This year we see people integrating their home styling and lifestyle together. We expect to increasingly see a combination of a mindful space and biophilic design principles. And our number one home décor tip for 2022 would be to select quality pieces that make you feel connected to nature, and that are both timeless and functional in the space. This way, they’ll transgress trends but still give you long-lasting pleasure in owning them.”
Scanteak – home décor online, including an AR experience
What tips do you have for people looking to buy furniture online?
“Remember to take note of the measurements of the furniture you’re eyeing, as well as your available home spaces, to ensure that what you’ve planned to purchase fits in nicely! It’s also important to have a clear idea of how you want your home to look, and how the colours fit together in your space.”
Anything new with your online shopping offerings this year?

Online shoppers will be able to use this feature to virtually place the selected product in their homes using their mobile devices to see how it fits with the surroundings. Here’s a sneak peek.”
Any particular décor trends you’re noticing in 2022?
“Furnishings that are reminiscent of nature remain popular, such as neutral, earthy colours, and textures such as wood. Moreover, with consumers becoming more eco-conscious, more people have been stepping away from ‘throwaway culture’ and looking for sustainable and durable pieces to furnish their homes. At Scanteak, our Scandinavian style furnishings are designed to be not just timeless, but also crafted to last with sustainably sourced teakwood.”
Soul & Tables – Singapore online shopping for new ranges
What tips do you have for furniture shopping online?
“We think it’s important to find out about a company’s background, as well as the source and origin of the products. Also, look at the services offered by the company; go for websites that have detailed information about the furniture and are transparent about services, warranty, prices and fees.”
Are you launching anything new for online shopping this year?
“Yes, we’re constantly expanding our collection! We’re bringing in new unique dining and bedroom pieces to our own Soul & Tables Signature Collection and you can also expect new ranges from our décor and outdoor brands.”
What home décor trends are you seeing for 2022?
“We have found that a little contrast goes a long way! Experimenting with textures and hints of colour has become very popular. Finding small statement pieces, be it with a natural weave or textured metal, means more creativity in how spaces are brought together.”
Just Anthony – find furniture online, including clearance pieces
It’s always a treat rummaging around Just Anthony’s fascinating store. However, if you don’t have the time to pop out there in person, you can do your furniture shopping online. When you’ve made that purchasing decision, the good news is that deliveries are free for orders over $180.
What should we look for homewares online?
“Be aware that colours and textures can look slightly different online than when you see them in person. As much as we try to make sure the colours of our products are as accurate as possible, some variation may still occur.”
Anything new for your online shop?
“This year, we will continue to expand our antiques section. Also, keep an eye on our clearance page where we add products from time to time; there are bargains to be had!”
What trends are you seeing for 2022?
“We’ll be bringing in more small and medium sized pieces, be it antiques or reproductions, rather than very large pieces of furniture. This means more furniture to fit into most apartments. We will continue to source a greater variety of accessories such as jars, figurines and table lamps. There will be a wide range of shapes and colours available, including yellow, coral and celadon green.”
The Furniture Makers – home décor online, for indoors and outdoors
Do you have any tips for people buying furniture online?
“Buying online without seeing the furniture might make it difficult to estimate how big (or small) the item actually is. Try looking at a physical item you have that is about the same size so that you have a better gauge of size.”
Are you launching anything new this year?
“One of the results of owning our own factory is that we’re always tinkering with new designs! We’ve recently added several rattan pieces that help add a different texture to a space, including the Kitsune Chair. We’ve also added the Luka Dining Chairs, made of outdoor-friendly synthetic wicker. This looks very natural and means that it’s very durable and can be used both indoors and outdoors.”
What décor trends have you been seeing in 2022?
“People are embracing a more eclectic mix of home pieces rather than complete sets of furniture. Mixing different colours and textures really brings a space alive. But it’s a fine balance between eclectic and confusing; one way to get it right is to start small with a few colours, slowly introduce different textures and see how the space develops.”
Boulevard Outdoor Furniture – Singapore online shop for outdoor pieces
As the largest outdoor furniture retailer in Singapore, Boulevard carries a huge range of outdoor furniture, suitable for the smallest balcony to the largest estate. Its signature collections are primarily manufactured in Indonesia, with emphasis on sourcing top materials and combining them with skilled craftsmanship to produce beautiful items of quality and style, at reasonable prices.
Any tips for customers looking to buy your furniture online?
“Measure the space you have for the furniture you want. Measure the hallways, doorways and lifts to ensure delivery won’t be a problem. Read the description, specifications, dimensions and attributes carefully. Also, note that the actual product colour may vary slightly from a picture due to various lighting conditions or different computer calibrations.
“In addiiton, make sure you read the terms and conditions of sale; this includes purchase and payment, delivery and assembly, exchange and return, and finally the warranty and service.”
Anything new for this year?
“Yes, we have brought in new matching collections of outdoor accessories like solar lamps, bar carts and planters. We’ve also added more teak, sling, strap and rope pieces to our collections – these are newer materials being used in outdoor furniture.”
Can you tell us about any trends for 2022?
“We’re seeing even more emphasis on indoor-outdoor living, such as covered patios, which can double as work-from-home spaces. Clients are also requesting outdoor furniture made of sustainable or recycled materials. Trending colours include nature-inspired hues such as muted nature colours like leafy greens, bark browns, ocean and sky blues, sandy beiges and cloudy whites. Selected greens like olive, sage, emerald or forest are naturally calming.”
Black & Walnut – browse new collections online
While the range of distinctive, designer-inspired luxury furniture from Black & Walnut won’t break the bank, it will turn your home into a unique showpiece. The team sources crafted designer furniture without the designer price tag. Hit up the store’s website for a first peek at the latest collections in the comfort of your own home. You’ll also get to access the in-store promotions online.
What should we look for when buying furniture online?
“Check the small print! Purchase information and terms and conditions should be transparent. Ours are clearly stated on each and every product page. These include pertinent information you need before deciding to buy online such as ‘purchase and payment’, ‘exchange and return’, and information on warranties. We have a dedicated after-sales support hotline where customers can easily make an inquiry. We also prefer to charge delivery service separately (rather than factor it in to our product prices); that way, you only pay one delivery charge per location per trip when you have multiple items in a single order.”
Are you launching anything new online?
“We recently introduced a new sofa collection, which is upholstered with 100 percent hydrophobic polyester fabric that holds up under the toughest spills. We’ve also added new items to our accent light collection and expanded our bedroom furniture range.”
Can you tell us about any trends for 2022?
“We’re seeing softer furniture silhouettes with more curved edges. ‘Curvalicious’ furniture is more feminine and forgiving. Even when paired with bold colours, these pieces won’t look too loud. For example, look at our curvaceous sideboard, which is soft, and natural, yet striking.”
Heveya – Singapore online shopping for all your bedroom needs

We recently added new colours to our Heveya linen sheets range, and we also now carry teak bed frames and accessories.

We will soon be adding towels and throws, all adding to that Heveya home experience!”
What trends are you seeing in 2022?
“When furniture shopping, people are more eco-conscious now; they like to buy things that are sourced sustainably and in an eco-friendly manner. Buying products from a green company like us is not just about investing in a better life for yourselves; it’s also for others and for the environment.”
Island Living – a wide range of home décor online
What should we be looking for when buying home décor or furniture shopping online?
“When home shopping online, particularly high-value items, play close attention to product details. For example, consider the dimensions, materials and care instructions to make sure it’s the right fit for your home. Also, do check the policy for change-of-mind returns; when home shopping online, you want to ensure the store offers at least a credit or exchange if you change your mind once receiving the item.”
Are you launching anything new online this year?
“We’re continuously expanding our collection. So we’ll be enhancing our shopping experience with exciting new furniture designs in the future; watch out for new dining tables, chairs, cabinets and even more nursery furniture, for example.”
What trends can you forecast for this year?
“We’re all spending more time at home due to continued travel restrictions. Because of this, people have been investing in making their homes more comfortable and enjoyable. Furniture that has that ‘resort-style feel’ and gives off the holiday vibe continues to grow in popularity, especially pieces made from organic elements and textures such as rattan and wicker. These natural materials add warmth and lightness to the home.”
Nestify – more great online shopping in Singapore
Got any tips for people shopping online in Singapore?

Are you launching anything new?

Are you seeing any décor trends for 2022?
“Black seems to be trending this year. It doesn’t necessarily have to create a dark, depressing environment; for example, you can mix it in with bright, light pieces for a monochromatic, modern setting. Or add in key black pieces to anchor a piece among more vibrant colours.”
