Shopping: 7 places to check out for budget-friendly furniture

Everyone wants to furnish their home with nice stuff, but doing that without breaking the bank can pose a challenge. We put together a list of places you can shop where items are relatively cheap and look good too!

1. Castlery 

The Underwood TV console retails for $439

Designer furniture starting at just a reasonable few hundred dollars? At Castlery, that is exactly the case. Unlike other retail brands, the brand does not absorb added costs like retail markups and shopfronts, thereby creating savings for its customers. What's more, in celebration of their 5th anniversary, enjoy great deals and discounts with a minimum spending of $750. 

Visit their website to shop or their studio at #03-07 The Grandstand. 

2. Hipvan 

Their Aaron Sofa Bed retails for $379.

Much like Castlery, Hipvan is an online furniture store that saves on retail rentals and renovation, passing those cost savings on in terms of lower prices for customers. If you like the Scandinavian aesthetic of simple silhouettes in natural materials, HipVan will be right up your alley. 

Shop their full collection online or visit their Experience Store at #02-06/07/08 The Cathay. 

3. Hock Siong & Co.

They started out as a karung guni business in the 1970s, and branched out into furniture in 1998. Today, with over 17,000 followers on Instagram and 42,000 followers on Facebook, Hock Siong has made a name for itself with lovingly refurbished and upcycled secondhand goods for use in modern homes.
