Our 3 seater sofa has been a sore & sorry sight for at least the last 6 months. We were pretty upset with the sofa, because it was just slightly a year old when the leather started to crack and peel at the arm rest. As days & months past tear started to show up at the other arm rest and on the seat. We got fed up and decided to peel off the entire section from the seats, then the back rest started to crack too. *sigh*
Initially we wanted to look for an upholstery company to salvage the pathetic sofa but never got around to do it. In the end I think we sort of just "live with it" and so it got stained with food sauce, perspire, juices, water etc. YUCKS!
Besides lacking the time, truth is we really do not know where to start to look for a company that is able to do upholstery without paying an exorbitant price. So to save us the trouble we decided that it's better to buy a brand new sofa set. Then again, there are so many furniture companies to choose from; international brands or local shops, we are really spoil for choice. Since we are not very familiar with the industry there is the fear of patronizing a shop (or even a blacklisted shop unknowingly) and end up either paying more than we should or get ourselves a nasty experience
One night I was surfing the net trying to find some information or reviews on good & reliable furniture shops, it was not long before I chance upon a website which I just have to share with everyone; FurnitureSingapore.net. FurnitureSingapore.net is one of the top local resource site for furniture shoppers and they have a great furniture store listings, with useful information on where to buy different types of furniture in Singapore. I like that I am able to see their various categories at a glance on their home page and with a couple of clicks I can see the shop listing with a neutral write up of the shop.

I immediately clicked on their listing for cheap furniture; don't be mistaken by the word "cheap" because sometimes the good & durable stuffs does not cost an arm and a leg, and besides the regular shops like Ikea, Novena & Courts I also see a handful of shops that I did not even know they exist! FurnitureSingapore.net provide a clear introduction on the stuffs that the shops are offering, their promotions, special buys etc. I am already excited to try to find out more about a couple of the shops and inquire about their sofa sets.
Upon further exploring on their website I realized that they did a great job in categorizing the listing by popular finds such as kid's furniture, sofas, dining tables and wardrobes. It makes finding specific items such a breeze~
Look at these beautiful furniture! These are a few of the great things you will find in FurnitureSingapore.net.
