Where to find korean furniture

Hi everyone

Where can you find korean furnitures in Singapore? We used to frequent one behind the indian temple at Chinatown which is closed now.

realised that my reply got deleted. probably its too detailed and it seemed like an advertisement.

you can look for born in colour, they deals with Korean furniture. their shop is in the north side of Singapore.

Get a book on collecting Korean furniture, read and understand it, and all the nuances that you learn. Understand how to recognise age, and quality, the different timbers, the evolving styles of hinges and locks, the nails used. And how to recognise the large amount of fakery.
Then visit Seoul, visit a few reputable dealers, and buy it there.

p.s. i used to be pretty clued up on antique Japanese chests. There is NO way I'd buy ANY '''antiques''' in this country. Almost all of it is fake, or patched together.... simply not worth bothering with.

p.s. Something like this... ... +furniture

Even a little knowledge will hugely empower you.
