Attractive promotions, gifts and live demonstrations take centre stage at this year’s Home & Decor Fair.
Held over the weekend of Aug 3-5, the 2018 edition of the Home & Decor Fair concluded with a bang at Marina Square. Readers, homeowners and new subscribers snagged great deals from participating exhibitors, including Agcdesign, Ergoworks, Ethereall, Eubiq, Gtech, Igloohome, Kaodim.sg, Maghrebi, Novita, Onna, Onlewo, Rabbit Island, Riau Candle Company, and Starry Homestead.
Homeowners looking to renovate their homes were able to consult interior design specialists Ethereall, Starry Homestead and Agcdesign on the spot, while enjoying attractive promotions and gifts.
Those looking for home appliances were delighted by the offerings from cordless vacuum brand Gtech, flexible power outlet provider Eubiq, and wellness product brand Novita.
Igloohome’s digital locks, as well as air-con and cleaning services offered by services platform Kaodim.sg, also caught the attention of many.
Fairgoers were not short on shopping options too. Lovers of Singapore-centric design were spoilt for choice at local design studio Onlewo’s booth, while those with more exotic tastes visited Middle Eastern home furnishing specialist Maghrebi. Paris Home catered to those more inclined towards classic European furniture designs.
Those looking to accessorise their homes with plants had plenty to choose from at Rabbit Island. Visitors also did a good deed with their purchases at Riau Candle Company, as 100 per cent of proceeds went to charity.
Visitors were also treated to interesting activities held in the afternoons. Maghrebi’s founder Sheenaz Fazreen demonstrated how to prepare a Moroccan tagine dish. This was followed by a fengshui talk by Master Jet Lee, and a live foliage arrangement demonstration by the ladies from June Floral Art School.
Dining vouchers and goodie bags worth over $20 were issued to visitors, while new magazine subscribers had their pick of selected gifts from Beoplay, Novita, Electrolux, Igloohome and more.
