One of the great things about living in Singapore is the gorgeous tropical aesthetic we get to experience every day. This can be translated into some really cool tropical house décor, from the shape and style of the pieces, to the materials used, and the theme. It’s not just about flamingos, pineapples and bamboo, though using those exotic motifs in your Singapore home doesn’t hurt either! Here are some cool stores to shop at for some tropical home style inspiration.
Places to buy tropical home décor
No tropical house is complete without a cool rug. The key is choosing natural materials in a flat or low pile to exude a breezy vibe. Living DNA’s gorgeous new collection of jute, kilim, sisal and recycled PET rugs were designed exactly for modern island living. We’re fans of their recycled PET rugs, made sustainably from used water bottles – they’re cottony soft, and did we mention washable? All their rugs are sourced straight from artisans in India, so prices are the best in town for such well-crafted pieces.
If, like us, you’ve been burned by buying the wrong home décor online, you will love the Living DNA shopping experience. Visit the showroom to see over 150 designs, or WhatsApp the design-savvy team for recommendations. Better yet, book the signature Home Trial service to see, feel and compare your top rug choices at your home. For a small delivery fee, your convenience and confidence in your choices can be sanity-saving!
