For The Common Goods
Sustainably produced products are the boutique’s unique point when sourcing out for international brands to distribute locally. For The Common Goods specially selects brands proximately close in Bangkok and Jakarta and as far as Belgium and the Netherlands. The boutique has dabbled in product design itself in its collaboration with Swedish-based design studio Bordbord to create a pink marble tabletop back in 2017. To create a personalised experience and reduce interactions, For The Common Goods now opens its sole store in Eunos by appointment.
Singapore Trading Post
Founded and run by Jo Harrison and Rob Pendergrast, the brand aims to relive the tropical colonial aesthetic with its unique pieces. The pair make it a deal to source for items from traditional trading routes such as Vietnam, India and Indonesia, and ensure safe working conditions for workers of their producers. Each piece sold by Singapore Trading Post is a guaranteed conversation starter with its charming old-world features and elaborate craftsmanship. The boutique now has two locations: its flagship store in Tan Boon Liat Building and another in Joo Chiat.
Home to a number of luxury brands such as Georg Jensen, Bernardaud and Jab Anstoetz, P5 makes its mark in the furniture and home decor scene for adding opulence to home design. They provide fixtures from designers such as walk-in wardrobe designs by Molteni&C and styling services by their team of experts for that dream home of yours. Reimagine your space by taking a walk through their showrooms in Winsland House on Killiney Road and Thong Teck Building on Scotts Road.
The homegrown design and lifestyle goods brand may not be all that unfamiliar to you if you’re the sort to frequent museums. Supermama has two stores at the Asian Civilisations Museum and National Museum of Singapore, providing novelty tableware inspired by Japanese culture with a Singaporean twist. Designs inspired by the traditional kebaya and Chinatown shophouses grace their porcelain blue and white plates, making dinnertime a little more interesting. They also distribute authentic Japanese brands such as Hyogo Craft and Maruban-Arita for those little feels of Nippon that you miss from holidays of yore. Find them on Beach Road or in the neighbourhood of Kugayama, if you’re ever back in Tokyo in the near future.
