Sorry can't help with the room by room place.

My hubby and I bought a really nice entertainment unit from Paradisa (not sure of exact name) at Dempsey Road. It was on the expensive side but the quality and finish is excellent. We're buying a bed there as well, which again is not cheap but in the long run will be worth it.

A friend told me about a really reasonable teak seller in Gillman Village next to Little Bali. Perhaps it’s worth checking out?

You can also ScanTeak:

Hawaii Furnishing Pte Ltd
Address : 60 Sungei Kadut Drive
Singapore 729569
Phone : 63682802
Fax : 63686752
Email : Email to Hawaii Furnishing Pte Ltd

I think that they have several retail outlets around Singapore but you will have to call them to find out where. I also think they are not that cheap but from what I can remember the stuff is good quality.

Ignore the Gillman Village place I previously suggested, 'Mirage Fine Teak'. I went this afternoon to take a look and was very disappointed. Completely over-priced and the finish is quite poor.

While I was in the area though, I checked out 'shophouse' and was impressed. Same quality as the Dempsey road one I mentioned earlier but a tad bit cheaper.

Good luck with your search.

Mirage Fine Teak

Post by beatle » Sun, 05 Oct 2008 4:50 pm

Another note about Mirage Fine Teak in case anyone else is thinking of checking out the place. The salespeople there are a bunch of crooks! I bought an outdoor furniture set from them two years ago and recently sent it back to be refurbished. The saleswoman Sharon called me back before taking delivery of the set to ask if i wanted to change the umbrella as well. I said no, it was weathered but still in good condition. After much pestering she finally said, "fine, but i warn you it might tear because it is so old and we may not be able to put it back". When the table and umbrella set was returned to me, the umbrella had several large gashes in it. They now insist that it was "already like that" and that they had called to tell me about it?! An utterly disappointing and quite ridiculous experience dealing with this bunch of crooks!

Don't forget that your piece of teak furniture will last a long time with the proper care so pick a shop that offers good after-care service as well. Buy from a reputable place, it will save you trouble later. :x
