Searching for the perfect gift for a loved one, but tired of the common items you see in shopping malls? Why not visit the Top 10 Lifestyle Stores in Singapore to pick up something that’s one of a kind, and certain to be memorable? You will be sure to find something pretty at one of these stores.
1) Cuckoo, little lifestyle store
Cuckoo was made with the little ones in mind, so you’ll find lots of items to brighten up your children’s rooms in a stylish way. From room décor and furniture, to art and partyware, it’s a one stop location where you’ll be transfixed with their chic items. Visit their store at Dempsey Road, and if you can’t make it there – shop online!
You’ll find accessories, home décor, and clothing at Egg3 but with a charming twist – they are handpicked merchandise from all around the world. Certainly one of a kind, and perfect for those who fancy themselves a little eclectic. Visit them at four different locations, check their Facebook page to find out where they are.
3) Flea & Trees
It’s a vintage lover’s dream here at Flea & Trees, and the store features pre-loved or vintage inspired clothing, furniture, jewellery and other accessories so you can live out your retro aspirations in this very era. Even if you’re not in the market for something with a little history, you may enjoy just the atmosphere of being surrounded by it – it certainly makes for a great cultural experience.
4) Little Man
It is marketed as a menswear store, but there are also items for women and kids at Little Man. Curious oddities, home accessories, art and other items can also be found here, if you only take a while to browse around their site. Stylish shopping at the click of a button has never been so easy or chic, so don’t blame us if you get hooked!
5) Mondays Off
In a perfect world, we’d all have Mondays Off – but since that’s a distant dream for most of us, why not settle for the next best thing with a store of the same name? Their quaint store is located on Haji Lane, the ultimate hipster haven. You’ll find lovingly selected items perfect to decorate your home with, or to gift your loved ones with. Most of their items are Scandinavian and Japanese-inspired, and there are locally designed sustainable products as well.
The team behind Naiise built the brand with the aim to “make design accessible”, and also improve people’s lives along the way. Think of it as an online one stop centre for unique and well-designed items. They also ship internationally, which is an added bonus for those outside of Singapore. From quirky earrings to iPhone cases and lovely art prints – you’ll find it here.
7) Fred Lives Here
Who is Fred, and where exactly does he live? Well, it’s hard to say but sometimes he’s at Jalan Pisang, but he’s always online too. Fred Lives Here houses many items that fall under the category of “Modern Classic” art, whether it’s home décor, furniture or kitchenware. Whatever you choose, you can be assured that it reflects a certain panache that is tasteful and chic, yet quirky all the same.
8) Roccoco Kent
Sometimes, you just need to rely on the classics. Roccoco Kent has all these and more, as they house vintage clothing, accessories, furniture, home décor and various collectibles and curios. Vintage collectors will appreciate this establishment, which has items like retro typewriters, cabinets, brooches and such. Note though that to view their items, you will need to call and make an appointment for a weekend visit.
9) Spur Hauswerks
You’ll find Hauswerks at Orchard Road, where they sell aesthetically pleasing functional items that you’ll have a tough time not buying. If you’re on the lookout for a useful item that’s stylish and pretty to look at, hop on down and browse through their items. This is a great place to shop for gifts as well.
10) Supermama Store
A family affair started by a husband and wife team, Supermama works with local designers and Japanese craft facilities who are in metal smithing, porcelain making, glass blowing, and others to produce souvenirs for those who take an interest in such items. There are currently three Supermama Stores in Singapore. You can find them at Beach Road, Esplanade Drive and Malan Road (which is accessible by appointment only).
