Love Singapore’s Art Deco Tiong Bahru Estate? Here’s How You Can Channel Those Mesmerizing, Revolutionary & Timeless Art Deco Vibes Into Your Own Home

Updated July 2023

MESMERIZING, REVOLUTIONARY AND TIMELESS. Art Deco has always inspired us here at SCENE SHANG, right from when we first launched the brand with our ode to Art Deco through the EMBRACE ME Collection. Clean, symmetrical, and geometric shapes come together beautifully, lending a touch of elegance to any space. Even till today, Art Deco remains a much loved aesthetic, with a desire for that very beauty of the style that originated in the 1930s, albeit with a contemporary expression. 

Here are five easy picks to introduce a contemporary style of Art Deco into your favourite spaces.

1. TIONG BAHRU Long Shelf

Inspired by our love affair with the timeless elegance of Singapore’s very own Art Deco estate. Having spent time on countless walks and living in the neighbourhood before, the TIONG BAHRU Collection is an homage by us to the much-loved, historic neighbourhood’s language of lines and curves, built in the 1930s and still a classic today. 

Solid elm wood shaped by Art Deco lines and curves is framed by elegant powder coated stainless steel frames, resulting in a contemporary look that brings a timeless elegance to your space.

So many ways to style your shelfie with the TIONG BAHRU Long Shelf!

Straight lines and curves define the charming Art Deco Tiong Bahru estate.


The next piece is also from our TIONG Bahru Collection - the TIONG BAHRU Desk.

Clean and simple art deco lines and curves create an elegant piece of furniture that is both functional and beautiful for all your different needs.

The multiple levels of the TIONG BAHRU Desk allow you to prioritise your favourite items without sacrificing aesthetics.

Multiple layers of the TIONG BAHRU Desk maximises display potential and gives you the freedom to style it as you please; from a study table to a vanity.

The contrasting grid windows in Tiong Bahru with textured green glass against the smooth white walls bring tranquility, creating a nostalgic and soothing environment.
