Some of them simply dazzle us with timeless international style, while others will appeal to those looking for a small space solution. We hope you find something here you love!
Singaporean homes are generally infused with a contemporary, bright and light decor. To counterbalance this it can always help to indulge in a rustic wooden dining table. The wooden finish will be a pleasure to touch and there's no clinking sound when laying down dishes.
When you don't dine at home too often, a folding table is a good option. It can be pushed up against the wall when not in use or pulled out to create a full sized dining area like this. We love the two-toned finish in this dining table. It adds a Nordic touch to the room.
A glass dining table can be good for retaining the light and breezy feel in the sultry Singaporean climate. The eye also passes over the translucent glass and this makes the home look and feel much larger than it actually is. This is a good choice for those who don't want their dining table to take up too much visual weight in the room.
