House Tour: A Uniquely Singapore Asian-Modern Home

This home reminds me of Singapore - it's not an HDB flat, but it's a space that's a perfect comination of Eastern and Western elements, old and new. The homeowner has a great eye for antique Chinese furniture, and designed his home to complement the furniture's clean, graceful profiles. The homeowner also bridged the past and the present by keeping some of the home's original fixtures, such as the retro staircase railings. Construction done by Fortune Wood Products & Construction.
