House to Home
Since the 1990s, Window to the Past (WTP) has been the go-to place for many people seeking a range of quality furniture with diverse designs. Its furniture, accessories, interior decorating, customisation and flexible leasing programmes make it a popular choice among newcomers to Singapore and long-term residents alike.
Started by owner Mimi Somjee, the company has over 20 years of experience in furnishing homes all across Asia, Europe and the US. The showroom boasts more than 5,000 products, and features everything from contemporary trends in colour, wood and soft furnishings, to modern glass and steel pieces, and exotic Asian classics.
Much of the furniture available – with the exception of the antiques, of course – is manufactured by WTP. Pieces can be purchased outright, rented monthto- month or leased long-term. Renting furniture is a great choice for expats on a shorter-term stay, or those who have left their home furnished in their own country and don’t want to buy a whole new set here. Customers can kit out their entire home with leased furniture, as well as electronics, bedding and other sundries, and then choose to purchase their pieces for a nominal fee at the end of the lease.
