When Dr Wong Chen Seong bought this flat with his researcher partner Rayner Tan, he could not think of a better person to take on the interior design than his long-time friend Wong Liang Wei. The two have known each other since they were 13.
A lawyer by training, Liang Wei joined Haven Lifestyle, his family’s business, five years ago as business development manager. The regional home lifestyle group distributes premium bed and bath products and have a boutique furniture factory.
Chen Seong’s brief to Liang Wei was straightforward but specific as they had clear ideas about what they wanted. He is an accomplished cook while Rayner is a trained pastry chef, so the kitchen is an important space. An avid reader and book collector, Chen Seong also wanted a library for his collection that includes many cookbooks.
