A stone’s throw away from the bustling hub of Toa Payoh lies Möbler, a home furnishings store with roots in Sweden. Founded by Emelie Hedén, who teamed up with her sister-turned-creative partner Ellen, the Swedish antique and vintage concept store aims to bring a new era of stylish home decor to the Singapore market.
Since childhood, the sisters have displayed an enduring passion for vintage furniture and along the way picked up the skills to restore old pieces. Their fascination with old-world furniture was further nurtured during summers spent in their grandmother’s country house in Börrum, which is furnished with a plethora of well-preserved pieces dating from the 1800s.
Stepping into Möbler transports you to a different time. With the aim of helping homeowners find their personal style while promoting sustainable purchasing decisions, Möbler’s 2,217-square foot space has been decked out in an assortment of vintage furniture from cinema chairs to, interestingly, a waffle iron. Each of the 500 furniture and decor pieces here has a unique history, exuding a distinctive charm that is sure to enchant. And with their comforting soft edges and slightly weathered look, these timeless staples will appeal to every design aficionado.
To keep their prices low and accessible to the homeowners of all stripes, the one-of-a-kind articles in the Möbler collection has been personally sourced by Emelie and Ellen from their network of antique dealers to ensure its authenticity. Before the duo commits to purchasing pieces to add to their collection, all of them – from the Allmoge and romantic Gustavian styles of the early 1800s, to Jugend and Art Deco periods – are carefully evaluated based on their original design, unique history and quality. They are then lovingly cleaned, restored, photographed and marketed by the duo.
A visit to Möbler is a must for all homeowners who are looking to find one-of-a-kind antique treasures without burning a hole in their pocket.
