The pretty French café in Tiong Bahru has an equally gorgeous sister in Orchard Road in the form of a stylish multi-concept store. The 600-square-feet space marries European furniture pieces – both contemporary and vintage – with Singaporean heritage designs, and carries over 700 lifestyle products spanning across 80 unique brands from all over the world. The centrepiece is none other than the attention-grabbing floor-to-ceiling island bar where enjoy a tipple or two. If you're feeling peckish, the café and bar dishes out French cuisine including Merci Marcel's signature French dumpling pasta but with a twist.
There's always that one-stop-shop that we love to frequent, but sometimes the same-old, same-old can be a bore. But with everything from in-house cafés to art galleries, these cleverly curated multi-concept stores are a great way to shake up your retail therapy session. Besides a plethora of products to bag, from wardrobe essentials to home accessories, these Instagrammable brick-and-mortar stores also make an ace backdrop for your next profile photo – with a cuppa in hand, of course.
