Vintage or pre-loved furniture have an aura which new pieces cannot attain. It could be the fact that they were once in the company of human beings for years, hence developing a little 'life' of its own. Or it could be because the non-populist looks were created to appeal to the consumers during that era and not so much to the masses today, imparting the pieces an exclusive character which cannot be replicated in modern furniture.
In Singapore, where new is better, shops which deal in true antiques are also getting harder to come by. That is until new startup Möbler came into the picture several months ago. This fantastic store offers more than 500 authentic Scandinavian vintage and antique furniture/decor suitable for any homes aiming for a unique style, a little unheard of on our shores in the past. From the early 1800's Allmoge and romantic Gustavian epoques, to Empire and Art Deco periods and the Bauhaus era, including Retro of the 1950-60's, all Möbler pieces cannot be found elsewhere in Singapore - or indeed in Asia. The only question to ask: are your pockets ready?
