etched in history

What makes a piece of furniture especially iconic is not the designer behind it, but how it has played a role in shaping our past and its relevance to our lives today. Cassina’s Capitol Complex series of table and chairs is such a collection. Designed by French architect Pierre Jeanneret in 1951, the furniture was intended for use in Chandigarh Capitol Complex in India. The designs have borne witness to the development of the land, since the days of early Indian independence. History aside, the bold look of the inverted V legs makes this series deserving of a place in your living room. The Capitol Complex table, office chair and chair are available at Space Furniture.Visit www.spacefurniture.com.sg to find out more.…

With the erratic weather we have been experiencing of late, it seems the world is finally recognising the existence of global warming and the negative effects it can have on our lives. As a result of this growing awareness, people are embracing the idea of “going green” in every sense of the term, from cutting down on plastic waste, to adding more greenery to living spaces. However, the preferred shade of green as we head towards the last quarter of the year is tending towards a darker hue mixed with a hint of blue, resulting in a rich and luscious teal. This sumptuous-looking…

bungalow 55

After seven years at Cluny Court, furniture and home accessories boutique Bungalow 55 has moved to a new nest. Perched on a spacious third storey unit in Dempsey, the 1,350 sq ft boutique is surrounded by tall trees and blessed with a constant stream of natural light. This sets a serene backdrop for the brand’s tropical glam pieces that are personally sourced by founder Nina Beale from America, Australia and Europe. She also runs an interior styling service, which was one of the reasons for the move. “The home styling consultations have now become a significant part of Bungalow 55. We needed a larger space to accommodate our furniture, and to design a better client experience. When I saw the floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the jungle, I was sold!” she says. Nina’s collection consists…
