No stranger to the scene, Hommage Lifestyle is the largest Japanese-inspired furniture and lifestyle concept store in Singapore, and has been operating in the Little Red Dot for over a decade. The store works with homeware and furniture brands from all across Japan, and is inspired by the nation’s pride and focus on long-lasting material and product quality.
One collection that stands out for sustainable design is Whisky Oak, by Nagoya-based retailer Yoshikei Corporation. As its name suggests, the wide range of home furnishings are handcrafted from whisky casks that have been salvaged from distilleries. Like the alcohol that was matured in the barrels for up to 30 years, the idiosyncratic characters of each preserved cask was conscientiously retained – or as the brand says, ‘regenerated’.
