At first, I was thinking of buying the table and chairs from IKEA, but since we don't have a kitchen counter the table would need to do double duty. The only problem is that most of what they sell have fibreboard tabletops.
I went around a few furniture shops before deciding on the following from the Furniture Mall:
- Mahogany table with glass top (130 x 90 cm) from UnikHome - SGD 716 including delivery
- Four dining chairs from Star Living - SGD 406 including delivery
Never thought that I'd go for a rather modern look, but that's the theme of the apartment so we may as well go with it. This option costs just SGD 32 more than the IKEA version inclusive of assembly and delivery fees.
