CLICK PICKS: FURNITURE SHOPPINGBy Nicole Kow
As we are so connected to our mobile devices and other tech what nots, I thought a new segment which has been lightly touched on in our past issues should be included. More web-focused by nature, Click Picks will highlight websites and e-commerce sites based on the respective topics. This issue we will touch on another five furniture and home décor e-commerce stores that are worth checking out.
Taylor B has a wide selection of home décor inventory that include both Asian inspired pieces as well as an eclectic selection of designer brands like Caracole, Schnadig, Century Furniture just to name a few. A drive along Keppel will bring you to their warehouse come showroom. As they receive containers of new products every week, you can expect to be spoilt for choice.
With the various sections of furniture, lighting and accessories available, the accompaniment of shopping via their e-commerce website makes it easier to search and narrow your selection. However, I’m quite sure that their online inventory is just touching the tip of the iceberg!
Castlery works on the basis of reinventing the business model of furniture retail. Collaborating with furniture designers, their aim is to provide quality furniture at honest prices by removing the need for the middle person. The extensive online inventory is quite up-to-date providing furniture, lighting and accessories.
While products are sold individually for the most part, there is a category that highlights bundled items which comes in handy when sets with a single price are what you are looking for. Castlery also provides customization for certain products which are easily navigated through click options for easy ordering. Like Taylor B., Castlery also has a showroom at Delta House which allow customers to visit.
One of the biggest home furnishing e-commerce sites in Singapore, FortyTwo is a 100% run online store. Unlike Castlery and Taylor B, office visits are strictly by appointment and they do not have a showroom which in turn allows them to keep costs low.
Also different from the other e-stores, FortyTwo carries more than just furniture but includes an inventory of appliances as well ranging from kitchen to bathroom to cooling units amongst others. FortyTwo also provides a 100-day return policy which allow customers to shop with more ease of mind.
Star Living is a multi-label store that has evolved from showroom-based to online. Featuring seven brands - Star Furniture; Mondi Lifestyle; Zen Tradition; LUCANO; JotterGoods; DecoTalk and BEDz Store, this store provides both reasonable and interesting pieces to suit your abode even if it’s theme-specific.
The e-commerce store is organized with around specific rooms which categorize products based on its purpose.
BoConcept is a Danish home furnishing company that has expanded worldwide including our shores. Design-centric, BoConcept has a team of in-house designers that create urban pieces that encompass both simplicity and functionality coupled with quality. As their approach is more than just selling furniture, customization is a key feature to their designs which allows customers to match BoConcept pieces to specifically suit the style of their homes.
With the Design in 3D option within their website’s product page, customers are able to visually work on customizing the item to suit them before contacting the store to make a purchase.
