Does it necessarily have to be balinese made or balinese style.
Barang Barang at Tanglin Mall and Great World City have the latter at fairly affordable prices

maybe Dempsey road, not sure about Baliness, but certainly lots of exotic ones.

Hello,

I've looked extensively at that sort of furniture in Singapore when I needed to buy some drawers... without a doubt for me, the most gorgeous furniture is at the Shophouse, Lock Road, Gilman village which is just off Alexandra Road from memory...

They have very dark wooden furniture - I think I wanted everything in the shop! They also have a sister shop in the same estate which stocks more contemporary blonde type teak. I wasn't so keen on that...

Barang Barang is ok - but if you go to the Shophouse.. other furniture kind of pales in comparison ..... they have a website too.

Good luck
A

I have to agree there! But price is also quite alot steeper generally.

I see Barang Barang outlets closed down in a few areas. But I personally find their things expensive.

Any other recommendations?

Definitely Dempsey Road area, especially the burmese teakwood shop. But loads of other ones to chose from in the whole area.

There's a handful of nice furniture shops at Gillman Village near Alexandra Road. If you go to see the Shophouse, walk around and check out some of the other nearby stores.
