For print lovers, here’s an exclusive collaboration between SCENE SHANG and our Favourite Local Fabric Designers that you’ll love. 

Choose from selected furniture designs from the Cane Collection, and style them with your choice of fabric print designs, all designed lovingly by our favourite local designers. 


Inspired by traditional Chinese scholar chairs, this contemporary version by SCENE SHANG changes the traditional sitting posture, from a stiff, if not serious one, to one with a relaxing lean-back, while still appearing refined. 

Handmade by artisans from sustainable rattan, this piece marries the art of tradition with contemporary and improved methods. Each arm rest is made by skillfully joining selected rattan core and then moulded to form a flat smooth surface on one side. The same method of joining and moulding is also applied to the back rest and yoke, lending a contemporary take to a traditional aesthetic. Tapered legs are capped with specially shaped brass feet for a touch of luxe. 

Finished in a natural, rustic clear coat on the rattan. 

A classic chair for any space.

‘Chinatown’ Velvet by Onlewo 


“Chinatown is the heart of personal history for many Singaporeans, including myself who grew up here with the fondest memories of the Majestic Theatre (大华剧场) and Kreta Ayer People’s Theatre (牛车水人民剧场). In the 70s and 80s, watching movies and opera performances were favourite family pastimes. Big festivals like Chinese New Year and Mid-Autumn, shopping at People’s Park Complex (珍珠坊) was always a highly anticipated affair. This design is a celebration of all these memories, which are akin to movie scenes that never fade away.”

- Mike, Onlewo

Cane Collection


  • Place your rattan furniture in places where humidity and heat levels are consistent, as changes can result in warps or cracks due to expansion and contraction.
  • Moisture and heat can cause damage to any finish. Always wipe up moisture promptly and dry with a soft cloth. Do not place hot items directly on the rattan surface.
  • Over time, air and sunlight may cause changes in the colour of the rattan. To reduce the change in colour, do not place your furniture in areas directly exposed to sunlight such as in front of windows.
  • If you are placing items on your rattan furniture, occasionally rotate the items to allow a more uniform color to develop.
  • For regular cleaning, a soft, lint-free cloth with water and a drop of mild soap is recommended. Do not use strong cleaning products such as bleach as this may dissolve the finish. If in doubt, test the cleaning product on a small patch in an inconspicuous location before applying to the rest of the furniture.
  • Every six months, use lemon oil or polish available from hardware stores, to protect the finish and retain a shine.


    Applicable to THE GENTLEMAN Cane Chair & THE LADY Cane Chair

    • The brass hardware are designed to develop a natural oxidised patina over time.
    • If you prefer to restore the brass hardware to a shine, you may use a metal polish suitable for brass metal. Do a small patch test in an inconspicuous area before polishing the whole hardware.
    • Avoid using abrasive cleaners that can scratch and dull the surfaces.

      Tempered Glass

      Applicable to THE SIDEKICK Cane Side Table

      • Glass surfaces are tempered to meet safety standards. You may see a label at the edge indicating that the glass has gone through this process.
      • Please be advised that hot objects must not be placed directly onto the surface to prevent damage.
      • Glass cleaners can be used to clean surfaces with a soft lint free cloth.

      Microfibre Cushion Covers

      Applicable to THE BOTANIST Cane Chair, THE MAVERICK Cane Chair & THE GENTLEMAN Cane Chair

      • To clean, brush off dirt from covers. Covers can be machine washed with soap and left to air dry.
      • Clean spills immediately to prevent stains by gently blotting the surface. 

      Bonded Leather

       Applicable to THE GENTLEMAN Cane Chair

      • Vacuum or wipe with a clean dry cloth regularly to remove dust.
      • For further cleaning, use a damp cloth with mild soap and water.
      • Do not use any alcohol based products as these may cause damage to the leather dyes and cause discolouration.
      • Keep away from heat, as this can cause damage to the leather surface.
      • Clean spills immediately to prevent stains by gently blotting the surface.
