Modern Peranakan designs for the home

Traditional Peranakan designs are so rich in visual imagery and colour, it’s not surprising that designers
are mining them to create products for the modern home. Designer Mike Tay of Onlewo and Malaysian Gwyneth Lim have created items that pay homage to this rich culture, while looking right at home with your 21st century pieces.
