HOT! FINDS

KNQ Associates scours the town for beautiful objects for the home!

I just got back from a whole-day furniture shopping trip and you bet that I'm dead beat! I had to run all over the island for the entire day, but I think I found some gems at Lava East (located at Defu Lane 10) that some of you would love.

Merging traditional craftsmanship with a contemporary Asian design sensibility, Lava East produces some of the more exclusive stuff that you see around. Kudos to the craftsmen based in the company’s factories in Vietnam, Thailand and Indonesia! Indeed, driftwood has never looked more artsy, as demonstrated by the huge array of the sculptural pieces (in wood, metal and stone) on show here.

Coming to furniture, there is a good selection too. My favourites will have to be their timber stools (or stumps?) and teak frame chairs/ sofas. Other notable mentions include their unique dining tables in somewhat unfinished teak or pilang wood. The rawness of the design will appeal to those who like their stuff rustic. And oh yes, how can I forget about their superb collection of lamps? The variety here is decent, and I especially like this oversized table lamp with a glossy turquoise porcelain base. Topped with a simple off-white fabric shade, this is an elegant looker.

Well, there’s so much more stuff I’d recommend but pictures always say it louder than words. So do take a look at the truckload of fantastic finds at the store and drop us a comment on which your favourite pieces are. Enjoy!
