Roche Bobois, the French worldwide leading brand in design and distribution of high-end furniture has proudly announced the grand opening of its Singapore showroom with a brand-new design concept. The new showroom spans over 5,300 square-feet and features an expansive floor-to-ceiling window to frame the beautiful selection of Roche Bobois’s best collections in a dynamic space; this elegant showroom opening also marks another milestone in the brand's significant expansion in the Asia-Pacific region.
Located at ground level of Boon Siew Building along Bukit Timah Road, the Roche Bobois Singapore Showroom possesses a wide store front to entice passers-by to peek into its luxe interior, which from a distance resembles a jewel box.
The new showroom of Singapore enjoys an incredibly large window that brings visibility and light to the showroom. The focus is indeed to highlight that advantage, and thanks to a mirror illusion, they have created a double exposure that makes the showroom look bigger. Inspiration has been found in the green space in the surroundings. The illusion of an outdoor space within the showroom has been created, giving the impression that indoor and outdoor spaces are a single and same place. The light wood flooring is chosen to go with that peaceful indoor garden ambiance and highlight the gorgeous green wall. While the geometric indoor partition creates an open space, the dark walls disappear to leave the eye attracted by the light, creating depth in the showroom.
Roche Bobois is a ‘story of people’, a ‘family saga’ which is still continuing with descendants of the founders acting as today’scompany directors. It all began with the fateful meeting of two families, the Roches, a family from France with a successful family furniture business since the 1800s, and the Chouchans, immigrants from Russia who in 1950 opened their own furniture showroom in Paris called ‘Au Beau Bois’ (‘beautiful wood’) - a brand name which would later evolve into ‘Bobois’.
Together, they formed a bond with a mission to offer customers high-quality and innovative designs relevant to the time. By theearly 60’s, they had already designed their first collection together. The first Roche Bobois showroom, designed by the visionary architect and designer Pierre Paulin, was opened at the same time on the Boulevard Saint-Germain.
Today, Roche Bobois has more than 265 showrooms in over 55 countries, a true mark of its ambitious, accelerated programme of international growth. After 17 new stores opened in 2017, this growth has continued in 2018 in vibrant cities such as HanoÃ¯, Washington, Tokyo and San Diego among others.
With a growing presence all over the world, Roche Bobois embodies the full diversity of French design. Thanks to its long-established network of European manufacturers and fruitful relationships with talented designers (such as Marcel Wanders, Kenzo Takada, Ora Ito among others) and also with prestigious fashion houses (e.g. Jean Paul Gaultier, Missoni Home), the brand has risen to the challenge of achieving an international presence by offering every client a personalised approach to home design and decor.

Guests can always rely on KAMA to be the place where they can even visit on their own and know they will meet like-minded people and enjoy not only great food, drinks and service but also immaculate company.
Eschewing the typical notion of Indian cuisine where the heavy, carbo-filled and rich curried offerings are the norm, KAMA’s menu will borrow the best of West and East in order to pamper our guests with just the right amount of every gastronomic element to enhance their experience.
The spice level is easily controlled as all dishes and curries are cooked ala minute.
Imagine tapas style bites that delights the palate and fills the tummy just right in order to enjoy handcrafted cocktails and the finest selection of beers, wines and whiskies.

The three foodies saw the potential for a landmark restaurant, firmed up the restaurant concept and exactly one month later, the new generation eatery, Roots Kitchen Bar, was born.
Behind the scene, renovations began immediately. With a classic brick & mortar decor, walls were peeled at the corners and lined by iron grills and edgy lighting frames. The undressed tables and service evoke a casual, friendly atmosphere. With rustic cellar vibes, the place beckons ‘Welcome’ to diners where they can feel right at home having a meal or drinks.
Roots serves fine European fare at casual dining prices, sans service charge or GST. On the menu, the star starter is the Mushroom Leek Fondue Soup which has diners asking for seconds. The Crabmeat Linguine in Lobster Bisque has very quickly become diners’ favourite pasta order. The Nagano Pork with Braised Cabbage side fights nose to nose with the London Broil Beef Flank in winning over meat lovers’ hearts.
For dessert, the Banana Bailey is the Chef’s unique take on the humble bread and butter pudding which has invariably garnered ‘must try’ recommendations from guests.
At the helm of the kitchen, Chef Alvin Tan, began his culinary career in the fine dining kitchen of Les Amis au Jardin, on to the Boathouse at the Fullerton where he started as chef de partie and quickly rose to be chef-in-charge. He was then headhunted out of Singapore 2 years ago to Velassaru, Maldives, where he was in charge of a signature restaurant.
Ukulele Movement (UM) is an initiative launched to increase the awareness and appreciation of ukulele in Singapore and beyond. This movement connects ukulele enthusiasts through regular events (performances, concerts, workshops) and activities like open mic, uke outings/meetups etc.
UM is also the first music retail shop in Singapore specialising in all-things-ukulele, offering a wide selection of high quality ukuleles imported from reputable brands, instructional materials and lessons, catering to people of all levels and ages.
The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore will unveil a brand new restaurant, called Colony, on 23 September 2015. Colony will take over the space formerly occupied by Greenhouse restaurant, which was closed in late March 2015 to facilitate the five-month transformation.
Located on level three, the name Colony alludes to the seafarious voyage that the British took to travel to the East Indies for trade and commerce in the late eighteenth century. Vintage maps and postcards which adorn the walls and decorative ornate leafing evoke the nostalgia of a bygone era, while eight different open concept kitchens, coupled with ‘live’ culinary showmanship, will bring diners on a multi-sensory journey through Singapore’s heritage cuisines including Malaysian, Indonesian, Indian, Chinese and Western, with dishes that encapsulate the flavours from the nation’s rich colonial past.
Award-winning New York based designer, Tony Chi, who possesses worldwide renown for designing some of the world’s most spectacular hotels and restaurants, is responsible for Colony’s novel concept, which manages to encapsulate elements and influences from both the East and West, and presenting them in a modern manner that is both meticulously composed and subtly orchestrated.
Robert Louey Design fashions the guest experience through vintage inspired restaurant collateral and packaging, while the butler style uniforms designed by Mineo San of Art Marginal reflect the service philosophy of the restaurant. The air of conviviality reminiscent of the all-day soirées onboard ships that noblemen and their families took from England to the East Indies, will be enhanced by music from Morton Wilson of Schtung Music.
Desker Road, once Singapore’s oldest and notorious red-light district, is now home to old-time shopkeepers, adventurous backpackers, migrant workers, small modern offices and a myriad of back alleys.
A key inspiration to Creatures’ debut at Desker Road is to be an atmospheric dining enclave in the heart of this culturally rich conservation area. Desker Road, with its whiff of old-world charm, beckons one home.
For over 20 years, the owners of Creatures reinterpreted favourites, jazzing them up with an Asian flair. When they moved into their new home, they combined their love for cooking and tasteful interiors, and began inviting families and friends for intimate home dining experiences.
With a passion for bringing out flavours through natural ingredients and experimenting with texture, the owners amassed a menu of their own creations after decades of thoughtful cooking. CREATURES brings that cosy home dining experience to all, with an aim to make the café a habitat of creature comforts.
Savour comfort on a plate at CREATURES, a modern-day café set in the culturally rich conservation area of Desker Road. Our hearty east-meets-west nosh comes with a twist – and without the MSG. We dish up irresistibly soothing comfort food with an Asian flair while staying true to the origins of the dish – all to make you feel both at home and in Eden.
Embodying IHC’s vision, the four-storey IHC building is an iconic, unique and sustainable building that blends both traditional Indian as well as modern architectural elements. The architectural design for the facade of IHC is inspired by the “Baoli” (or Indian stepwell), and seeks to create an urban forum for the celebration and appreciation of Indian culture.
The diversity and multi-faceted nature of Indian culture is also captured in the use of a translucent shimmering façade to create an impression of IHC as a “shining jewel” in the day, and the transformation of the IHC into a “glowing lantern” of the Indian community with the lighting of the colourful façade mural at night.
The IHC adopted an inclusive curatorial approach under the guidance of the IHC Concept and Content Sub-committee; and defines Indian in the pre-modern context of the subcontinent. Thematic permanent displays and/or special exhibits as well as programmes at the IHC will showcase various communities from the subcontinent with ‘lived histories’ in Singapore. In addition, memories and accounts of the community have also been captured.
The IHC’s permanent gallery storyline revolves around five themes arranged chronologically to span the time period 1st century CE to the 21st century. The themes present, through artefact and interactive displays, the long history of interactions between South and Southeast Asia as well as the experiences of South Asians in Southeast Asia (especially Malaya); Singapore in particular. They narrate the history of the migrant community and their contributions to Singapore.
Amongst the hustle and bustle at the heart of Little India’s Syed Alwi Road, a Chindian restaurant is spicing up the vibrant Indian food scene with a new chef and a new menu.
Copper Chimney, the 10-year-old Syed Alwi flagship which prides itself in its distinctive North Indian and Chinese Indian cuisine, has gotten a fresh new interior and a revamped menu since F&B industry veteran and now Copper Chimney CEO Vikram Natarajan took over the reins two and a half years ago.
Manchurian sauces and momos or Nepalese dumplings may be the more well-known Chindian staples, but if you’re looking for a crisp start to the meal, the Salt and Pepper Baby Corn is a crunchy surprise on the menu. Expertly stir-fried with a healthy dose of garlic, peppers and soya sauce, this dish goes well with a cold glass of beer.
Another interesting starter is the Chicken Lollipop, juicy chicken fried in crisp batter and served with a spicy szechwan sauce on the side.
The Chicken Manchurian and Chilli Chicken are two of the most popular Chindian dishes on the Copper Chimney menu. The Chicken Manchurian, in particular, is a combination of chicken and freshly sautéed vegetables served in a sweet and sour brown sauce.
The ubiquitous fried rice dish will never be the same again once patrons have tried the spicy Szechwan Fried Rice, which can come served with prawns or chicken or as a vegetarian option. Another of the restaurant’s more popular dishes and made with 100% Basmati rice, the Szechwan Fried Rice has a fiery, rich depth of Indian and Chinese spices.
Each dish is carefully prepared with a selection of high quality spices. Szechwan peppers are brought in from China, and green chilli paste flown in from Calcutta to recreate the authentic flavours that Copper Chimney offers.

After running Singapore’s renowned Expat Auctions for several years, where they handle an eclectic array of furniture and decorative pieces from all over the world on behalf of relocating and redecorating clients, Rob and Jo saw a gap in the market for stylish and quality international homewares and decorator items at a reasonable price. And so Singapore Trading Post was born.
The store name, Singapore Trading Post pays homage to this country’s establishment as a vital trading post for the East India Trading Company in 1819. And they continue this tradition by sourcing carefully selected pieces from old East India Trading Company areas including Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh as well as Indonesia, Vietnam and Myanmar. Their collection reflects this significant colonial era and is perfect for sourcing distinctive items that will add unique character to your space.
