3 Furniture Shops to Check Out at Midview City

Check out these furniture stores we found at Midview City.

Past the stretch of popular eateries along Upper Thomson Road is the self-contained business hub known as Midview City. This eight-storey compound houses, among other things, offices, restaurants, stores and even a child-care centre. Also adding to the mix are many furniture shops and interior design firms, of which we visited three.

LAVA EAST

As champions of the beauty of nature, Lava East offers bespoke furniture, sculptures and lighting fixtures that are made from natural materials. Even the cavernous showroom – with its mezzanine floor – is clad in industrial surfaces and organic surfaces that promote the company’s belief in the aesthetics and power of nature.

Here, you can find bespoke timber furniture, including large slab tables and benches, as well as light fixtures that make a bold statement. If you’re looking for artwork, Lava East also carries intriguing sculptures that are the perfect complement to a contemporary home.

When you’re at the showroom, don’t be afraid to experience the space with your sense of touch. You’re encouraged to feel the materials, be it polished wood or the rough texture of concrete slabs. Best of all, almost all the furniture pieces at Lava East are customisable.

THE EWINS HOME

With its range of home fittings and interior components, The Ewins Home helps homeowners to fully utilise their space to its maximum capability. It’s only fitting that the showroom was recently revamped to better show how interior fixtures can make a space more efficient and organised.

Part of the showroom has been transformed into the Raumplus flagship store in Singapore, and showcases the German manufacturer’s range of sliding doors, room dividers and interior systems. Here, one can see how Raumplus system can neatly organise a wardrobe, utilise the corners in a room, or provide sliding doors for that tricky space beneath the stairs.

Apart from Raumplus systems, The Ewins Home also carries other essentials including kitchen systems, LED light fixtures, office furniture and premium panels from in-house brand Veromobi. Almost everything you see in the showroom is for sale, including the accessories that are used to style the mock-up rooms. These range from the beanbags on the floor to the ornaments sitting on the shelves. Also, check out the Delica range of tableware comprising trays and other homeware made from beautiful wood veneer.
