Designers and homeowners looking for bespoke fittings have a new option to shop from: the Lux & Beyond store. Originally a single-brand showroom in 2018, the company has since brought in more design names and expanded its offerings for customers, including custom lighting and panels.
It’s not your standard showroom, either. The space features a variety of luxury living concepts, designed with the purpose of showcasing their products. Shoppers can expect to see themes like The Library, a room designed to resemble a classic Italian library but outfitted in white oak for a contemporary touch instead of the traditional dark walnut, and the Chinoiserie Room, which features hand-carved details and exotic finishes.
Within these rooms, you’ll be able to find brands that specialise in custom work, such as Serip Organic Lighting. Each of their nature-inspired works is conceived as a lighting sculpture, and is made by artisans using handcrafted bronze and hand-blown glass in their Lisbon-based workshop. Likewise, for those seeking wood craftsmanship, the store carries luxury Italian flooring brand Foglie D’Oro, which produces a wide range of planks, chevrons, herringbones, and refined inlay panels from sustainably-sourced walnut and oak.
“We know that each and every designer is different, so we wanted to make sure we could offer bespoke, made-to-order pieces. Even if what the designer has is only a sketch or just an idea, we can help to realise it because we work directly with the manufacturers,” shares Kenneth Fung, the manager of Lux & Beyond. The team, who has more than 20 years of experience in interior design, is able to advise on the products and materials that are suited to Singapore’s high-humidity climate.
Just browsing? You can simply walk in and take a look. The store does carry stock for all its brands, but custom items may require a lead time of 3 – 4 months. Lux & Beyond is at 8 Burn Road, Trivex, #04-04.
