SINGAPORE — Homegrown furniture and design label Scene Shang opens its second store at Singapore’s 132-year-old iconic Raffles Hotel. The flagship store is designed to be as a serene apartment that is ‘lost in time’, as the interior walls are painted with aged moss relief, with the addition of vines and creepers.
Co-founders Pamela Ting and Jessica Wong also sourced vintage wood trim with emblematic Western-style leaf mouldings and geometric Chinese Great Wall style links that skirt the walls. It’s also very, Instagrammable.
“We imagined our shop as a respectful, gentle, and new inhabitant of the space—where the aged walls touched our newly laid floor, the glow of lights emanate where the old and new meet,” Jessica Wong, co-founder adds.
Objets d’art from Asian craftsmen and renowned local artists such as Arthur P.Y Ting and Mr Yee from Hup Yick are featured here, alongside art and award-winning designs such as the Jia Ju Rocking Stool, The Banker Desk Lamp, and a collection of home fragrances.
First made in Singapore sofa design in the store is the Yan Sofa, which features leather covers and the fine down feathers cushion inserts. The store also offers a curation of exclusive, limited edition collectibles.
Scene Shang Raffles Hotel also offers an exclusive monogramming service, enabling guests to personalise furniture, homeware or gifts with names, blessings, or well-wishes in round brass talismans, for a meaningful gift.
Scene Shang Flagship Store is located on 263 Beach Road, Singapore 199542 Opening hours: 11am – 8pm daily (till 9.30pm on Fri & Sat)
