Just when you start to think Tiong Bahru is somewhat over-the-hill and gradually falling behind other hip new neighbourhoods in terms of creative new offerings, a store like Maissone pops up to prove us all wrong. Tucked neatly within a cluster of breezy cafes and small independent boutiques, Maissone is a welcome addition to an area dearly lacking in the home accessories department.
The contemporary homeware store offers a curated mix of exquisite designer and one-off pieces that are sure to impress. It’s founder, Michelle Boyce, has a healthy obsession with design and interiors and has used her extensive travel history to guide her product choices. Displayed in full glory is a refined selection of exquisite tableware and Scandi-chic décor. Rustic teak bowls, petrified wood platters and trays of concrete and polished brass are just some fine examples of the hero pieces you could joyfully make away with.
Maissone is also where you’ll be able to shop Thread Design collections exclusively. Designed and made in New Zealand, the premium range of bed linen brings warmth and cheer to the bedroom with its playful colour palette and trademark simplicity. Take your pick of beautiful home décor objects such as Moroccan leather poufs, colourful printed cushions and Scandi-style cross shaped trivets that enhance the simple pleasures of the home.
Maissone, 20 Eng Hoon Street, Tiong Bahru, Singapore. Open Tuesday to Friday, 10.30am – 5pm; Saturday, 10.30am – 6pm & Sunday 10.30am – 6pm (Closed from 17 – 23 Feb)
