IN OUR At Home With SCENE SHANG series, we bring you a peek into the homes of some of our customers, and uncover the meaning of home in a heart-to-heart chat.
The people, things and surrounding stories that our homes encapsulate are what give these dwellings great meaning and make our hearts full. For this feature, we speak with Andrew and WanLing in their beautiful home.
Collect your thoughts or watch a chef at work, as you perch on a comfy TENG Bar Stool with a lovely spot of tea by your side. This is a Special Edition with upholstery in Dusty Pink.
PLEASE TELL US A BIT ABOUT YOURSELF.We both work in the healthcare industry.
When not working, we like to head out to the great outdoors to seek our peace, and sometimes for that little bit of adrenaline!

“Heritage and culture form the backbone of a thriving society, without which, we are reduced to nothing more than an empty shell that’s devoid of senses.”
WHAT INSPIRES YOU TO DO WHAT YOU DO?Life. We meet many people from all walks of life in the course of our work and everyone has their own story. It’s from these stories that we draw strength to do what we do. To recharge, we head back into nature. Pre-Covid, there were annual white-water rafting and hiking trips, with New Zealand and the Patagonian Alps as our top adventure favourites. Now, we do regular rambles in Singapore’s nature reserves.

DO YOU THINK HERITAGE AND CULTURE ARE IMPORTANT TO CREATE A SENSE OF PLACE IN A SPACE?That is without a doubt! Heritage and culture form the backbone of a thriving society, without which, we are reduced to nothing more than an empty shell that’s devoid of senses. What’s important is to keep the intangible forms, such as traditional practices and celebrations, alive, and modernising the tangible forms to keep relevant in today’s world. We feel proud that our friends Jessica and Pamela have embraced the latter so well.

Our favourite furniture is our customised MING Dining Table and Bench, that’s as handsome as it is comforting. It’s where we live out our daily lives and catch up with each other over meals. It’s also where family and friends gather to feast and celebrate. Many happy memories were created around this dining set.
