IKEA isn't the only option.

[UPDATED JUL 31] Finding a decent place to get furniture is hard, and if going on another trip to IKEA grinds your gears, look no further. We round up the 11 furniture stores that you should be looking at to buy some sweet stuff for your new home.
 

Commune

This homegrown furniture store now has a large concept space in Orchard Road. This one has a range of Dualtone living and dining room furniture inspired by the 1950s with lots of muted grey and dark walnut wood. 

Danish Design Co

Those into the clean, Scandinavian aesthetic will find lots to love at this furniture store, which specializes in established and award-winning Danish labels like Fredericia, Eilersen and Gubi.

Foundry Store

Besides its own namesake designs, browse cult labels like Denmark’s &Tradition and Finland’s Secto Design, which have been curated for their heritage, durability and creative thought processes.

Fred Lives Here

According to imaginative owner Angie, who created a persona for the store, Fred's taste in furniture has led him to source for some high-quality reproductions of modern-classic interior design items and sells them (at their dedicated showroom within PACT). He (or she) also partners with cool creative types to create one-of-a-kind functional art for the home.

Galanga Living

Not one for mass produced goods? Then this is one place you’ll definitely want to check out. The roomy, industrial-style shop floor packs in a wide collection of furniture and home accessories that put a refreshing twist on Scandinavian design, with a touch of Asian influence.

Grafunkt

Bedroom and living room sets, with minimalist yet playful sensibilities, greet you at this multi-label furniture retailer and lifestyle brand, helmed by Jefery Kurniadidjaja and Nathan Yong (who won Singapore President's Design Awards for Designer of the Year in 2008).

Journey East

Bright colors on walls, floors artwork and lightboxes lettered with fun phrases add a lively and quirky atmosphere to this sparse and unpolished emporium. Look out for an eclectic, cheery collection of upcycled, refurbished furniture, as well as vintage and designer pieces to spruce up your home.

Moodbox

With a distressed-industrial look and refined, colorful touches, this store completely changes its theme and mood every six to eight weeks (hence its name). Expect a wide and carefully curated selection of homeware and personal accessories with a boho touch, like whitewashed rattan baskets and painted birdcages.

Retro Colony

This showroom carries simple, retro, Scandivian-inspired furnishings sourced from Sweden and Japan. Pieces are reproductions of original designs from the 1960s, ranging from walnut and vinyl leather armchairs, oak cupboards and bureaus. Definitely for those who like Scandinavian furnishing but dislike IKEA.

Space Asia Hub

This 42,000 sq. ft luxury furniture store is a truly gorgeous space that houses designer wardrobe systems, lights and furniture from famous brands like Moooi, B&B Italia, and Flexform.

Xtra

The sprawling 2,000 sq meter showroom, which covers three levels at Park Mall, houses Herman Miller's first store-in-store concept. It has a collection of designer furniture from the world's most prolific designers and cutting-edge brands like Kusch + Co, Dedon and Tom Dixon.
