This American import is The Finder’s favourite place to go to for a little décor therapy. Making waves when it first landed on Singapore’s shores, it has since expanded from its original location at ION Orchard to include a 25,000-square-foot retail space at Orchard Gateway, spanning five levels. Each floor features a different assortment of products, from upholstered furniture and wooden casegoods to pillows, drapes and bedding. With so many chic choices, you can easily mix and match.
