Some people will say, visit a furniture store, but don't believe them.

Just got a fabric one from Carrefour at Suntec.

One nice thing about going there is the sales staff don't hound you like many other places I've been to. Maybe the commission is so low that they can't be bothered, lol.

IMM mall, beds.sg, there is a level of furniture stores in Marina Square mall, and there is a dedicated furniture factory estate but the location escapes me....

Can't remember - it's an industrial estate full of furniture outlet shops. A lot of choice and equally as much tat, but some bargains to be had no doubt.....

I went to three places to hunt for my sofa at Furniture mall, Park mall and IMM. I found that the sales people in Furniture mall are mostly hard selling. Did not like it there much. In Park mall I found the sales people to be more friendly and know their product well. I found a brand Istill sold under Castila, their frabric sofa can be customise, I rather like their design. Was wondering if anyone here have their sofa, please give me some feedback. I also like Ivan the sales person that serve me, no hard selling and give me a nice presentation of their product. Is there any other brand of customise sofa in the Singapore market? When I visited IMM, there was mostly leather and very little frabric, did not stay there long. Will be going to other places suggested, but will need to be next week. Will update on my hunt.

You may try Carrefour at Suntec. They have some fabric sofas which can be customized out of 20+ types of fabric.
