The Local Brands To Shop For Stylish Home Accessories And Furniture

#1: Outofstock
Helmed by a four-member collective, Outofstock is a brand that caters to minimalist lovers. From its furniture to its home accessories, each piece features clean lines and an unfussy aesthetic, placing emphasis on function and practicality. Do not be fooled though, as there are some really unique pieces (yes, we are talking about its Dunes space divider, a set of modular, stackable screens inspired by the undulating sand dunes of the desert) which will definitely lend an edgy appeal to your home.

Unlike the previous brand, Meykrs takes its cues from popular traditional local foods many of us know and love – think ang ku kueh, pandan cake and kueh bahulu made supersized into cushion forms. Its newest addition (and its cutest one yet): mint chocolate chip and raspberry ripple ice cream (yes, we are talking about the $1 ice-cream commonly sold along the streets) cushions – what’s not to love?

If you’re into contemporary homeware furniture with an Asian-inspired twist, then you have to check out this brand. One of its more popular items? Its cushion covers which features prints of iconic traditional places and buildings in Singapore. What else we love: it’s newest kitchenware line that comes with colourful serving bowls and baskets. 263 Beach Road, tel: 6291 9629 #4: Degree Store
Here’s a brand that will definitely appeal to the art crowd, what with its quirky furniture pieces and home accessories. It also sells artworks, tote bags and posters amongst others which are equally as fun and playful. Our pick? The alphabet furniture set that’s created from letters which can be customised to form a side table, stool and more. Get the products here: www.degreestore.net #5: Originals
If you’re more into simple, elegant furniture, then we recommend you check out Originals. The brand is committed to saving the environment and thus, ensures all processes of making each piece is as clean, energy-saving and as renewable as possible. 896 Dunearn Road, Sime Darby Centre #02-03, tel: 6471 9918 Like this?
