2. For high-end rattan furniture - Ong Shunmugam
If you recognise the name Ong Shunmugam as a womenswear label, you wouldn’t be wrong. But they’ve since ventured into homeware and furniture and boy, do we want our hands on them.

9. For affordable (but decent) replicas – Iuiga
Launched back in 2017, this mainly online lifestyle retailer carries cheaper copies of products from well-known brands like Muji, Joseph Joseph, and WMF. From home accessories to kitchen ware and most recently furniture, Iuiga has quite a bit of everything. They did get into trouble a while back with Muji for using their brand name to market their products, but that didn’t stop them or their popularity. It also helps that their pieces are genuinely decently made too. Online reviews for most of the items are pretty comprehensive so you know what you’re getting into before purchase.

12. For beautiful furnishings that double as decor – Eloise the brand

You will see pieces of pottery and woodwork with organic forms, some of which are too pretty to be purely for function.
