WHAT INSPIRES YOU TO DO WHAT YOU DO?
Selected rattan cores are skillfully joined and then moulded to form a flat smooth surface on one side of the armrests, yoke and back. Celebrate memories akin to movie scenes that never fade away, with silky ‘Chinatown’ Velvet by Onlewo to bring out the natural rattan. Visit our store at Raffles Hotel for more fabric selections from Onlewo!

DO YOU HAVE A FAVOURITE PIECE OF FURNITURE AT HOME? IF YOU DO, PLEASE TELL US MORE ABOUT IT.
My bed haha. The wingback chair in the living room reupholstered in my City In The Garden velvet fabric. It’s very comfy, I use it to take short naps occasionally.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE THING TO DO AT HOME?
Spending time with my local specials. My dogs make my days light and happy. They keep me young at heart. Music too. I love Jazz24, it keeps me inspired when I am working.
A physical and emotional space for resting and dreaming.
