Where to shop for furniture in Singapore

I'm going nuts searching the island for furniture, and every time I go on the internet to get ideas, I always wondered to myself why cant we have such nice stuff over here? Why cant I be in London or New York or even good old Thailand? I have listed the places I've been, for the benefit of people who have the same problem as me :(

Door Knobs

I have been obsessed about door knobs for a very long time, they are just like jewelleries for door, they dressed them up or down.

I bought some porcelain door knobs from a shop in Plaza Singapura, planning to use for Meya's wardrobe. They are having a store wide sale, only paid $10 for one instead of $17 :)

This evening, I popped by Robinsons and I found these vintage glass knobs! I'm so surprised to see such things here, so far I only see such knobs on Etsy. However, there are only 3 pcs left so I bought all of them. I have not decided what to do with them, as usual buy 1st decide later. And the best part is they only cost $20 after 20% discount.

My weekend purchases - OM

Glass Coffee Table . Only $199 original was abt $950. This is really a yucky image, but its the closest match to the table we bought. This comes in black but all sold out :(

Our Dining Table in white, it matches my ornate mirror for the hall :)

We also bought a white floor lamp and a sofa, unfortunately I couldnt find the images online so I can only show off when they get sent to the new house.
