In the quieter part of town is Millenia Walk, a two-storey mall designed to resemble a private street. Replete with high ceilings and European-style indoor street lamps, the building houses design-focused lifestyle brands as well – many of which are local.
There are a total of 5 audio stores, 5 furniture and bedding stores, a piano store called Pianoland, and a Harvey Norman flagship superstore that opened in 2015.
The five Millenia Walk audio stores include Absolute Sound, Atlas Sound & Vision Boutique, AV Intelligence (closed Mar 23), and AV One.
The five Millenia Walk furniture stores include:
- Commune (includes Alt.o by Commune, Commune Cafe)
- Grey & Sanders
- Huls Gallery
- Luxury Mattress Collection
Here’s a round-up of furniture stores, and design boutiques that are worth more than a second look.
Get your fix of wooden furniture here. Being the planet-loving company that it is, Commune ensures the usage of ethically-sourced lumber so you can shop guilt-free. Its flagship outlet also houses its sub-label, Alto Commune, with larger furniture pieces for bigger landed and international homes.

Luxury Mattress Collection
Looking for uncommon and rarer mattresses in Singapore? Luxury Mattress Collection carries three premium mattress brands: Royal Auping, Treca Interiors Paris, and Vispring.
The Royal Auping is a mattress brand founded in 1888 by a man called Johannes Albertus Auping from the Netherlands. They’re best known for their adjustable mesh bed bases that can be raised and lowered, and slides back and forth for that perfect bedtime reading and tea.
The French bedding brand, Treca Interiors Paris, has been around since 1935 and is best known for their mattresses that are handmade in their two workshops near Château de Chambord, and in Reichshoffen.
Vispring, on the other hand, is a bedding brand founded by an engineer named James Marshall who handmade his wife a coil mattress when she fell ill in 1899 in Canada. Later, in 1901, two men named John Nolon and Frederick James bought over the individual pocket coil spring design and founded Vispring.
Luxury Mattress Collection is located at 9 Raffles Blvd, #02-24/25 Millennia Walk, Singapore 039596
Founded in 2001, OVAS is a home decor and art store, short for Originality, Vases, Arts, and Sculptures.

This Harvey Norman Millenia Walk flagship superstore is nothing like the other outlets you see around the island. Besides stocking the usual IT and electrical products, the space also carries a wider range of furniture brands and models.
If you might remember, this massive space that Harvey Norman now occupies used to be Parco Departmental Store. This is a good one-stop-shop for new homeowners who prefer a fuss-free furniture shopping experience. You can negotiate a “group buy” or “bulk buy” discount if you’re getting three or four furniture and appliances from this store at once.
If you’re a lover of clean and contemporary designs, this is the place to be. The 5,500-sqf flagship store of local furniture retailer Grafunkt is a potpourri of international brands. Besides its in-house furniture range, it carries Danish furniture from Hay, Portuguese flatware from Cutipol, and French fragrances from Mad et Len.
Grafunkt used to be located at 9 Raffles Boulevard, #02-34/35/36 Millenia Walk. Singapore 039596. It’s now located at 107 North Bridge Road #04-01 to 06 Funan Mall, 179105.
