Classical furniture pieces - i like i like!!

Are you like me? its my dream to have my home to be fully decorated in modern victorian decoration. I've been intensely searching and sourcing for related furniture. I've personally went down to check out the items for some shops.

Classical

Recaptured
Enterprise One, 1 Kaki Bukit Road 1
#01-07/08
6749-1003

It has quite a range of colours. Red, baby blue, white, silver, gold and black.
The furniture looks pretty sturdy. And designs are quite unique too. I was told the pieces are imported from France. And the dresser that i set my sight on has a unique identification number. How cool is that? But of course the price tag is huge too.

Per sales personnel, the furniture is made of solid mahogany wood. The seats are quite hard. Designs are classical and finishing pretty standard.

The Cottage Crafts
37 Ann siang Road

I love the ribbon distress linen holstered chair. Its the most comfortable seat i've tried. The items here are more expensive than any other places. There is a very extensive variety of furnishings that are very classical. Swoon~

But its freaking expensive!!! The furniture is made of mid range mahogany wood.

Roomyroom

51 Ubi Ave 1 Unit #01-10 Paya Ubi Industrial Park
6466-8968

Items here are mostly white wood work. But the touch up is quite bad! It appears that the furniture has been given a very thick coat of paint. But this place sells classical furniture very cheaply. The cheapest i've seen. It has a very extensive range of other furniture in this warehouse and those other furniture is wood. And its really nice. I think its nicer than the classical furniture.

The furniture is very similar to the ones that cottage craft. But they are not solid wood. So i walk out without turning back.

This is the new kid on the block. And its starting its business in November.
The pro is the furniture are finally installed with modern rollers for drawers. Finally i found the only one furniture that is made this way but still very true the classical design

The country style


HuaRong Arts & Crafts Pte Ltd / HuaFu Furniture & Homewares

The items here are mainly the rose series. There are few classical pieces.
And they also have baby blue, cream and white. Discounts are marked off listed price while i was there. All furniture is made from elm wood.

Creations from the heart
Anchor point basement
They don't seem to sell any furniture. Focus seem to be on kitchen furnishings.

Other recommendations from online:

As i've never been to these places myself. It could be now defunct.

Well if you can find a good place to recommend please do share with me and other brides. Classical, victorian, baroque furniture is an expensive affair. Let us save as much as we can.
