5 Stylish Home Pieces That Could Make Any Space a Minimalist’s Dream

Living in a rental home in Singapore – one of the most expensive countries to live in the world – means furnishing your space with pieces that are affordable and easy to mix and match. Choosing minimalist furniture is a sensible decision, and as it happens, the Little Red Dot will give you lots of options for simple pieces that can give your home a designer look without cluttering your space. Here are some great-looking pieces from local brands that will transform your interiors.

1. Fika Swedish Collection

If you’re a fan of the clean look of Swedish furniture, born in colour’s Fika Swedish Collection is just the right set for your home. 1950s mid-century interiors inspire the simple lines and mahogany wood finish. Moreover, it gives a relaxing look that is just perfect for a modern, laid-back vibe. The collection includes cabinets, study desk, drawers, and dresser consoles. The Fika Swedish Dining Table is a steady favourite, which has a built-in compartment for your utensils.

If one could make a living making and sharing memes, Justine would have done so and with utter relish. But alas, no such job exists (at least to her knowledge), so here she is, digging the deep trenches of the Internet to back up the words she strings for posterity and public service. Her current passion for memes is relegated to pastime status, but she hopes that one day, she can sit back with a dirty martini and scroll and share memes like a beast without having to worry about next month's rent.
