Established Japanese furniture brand Actus recently opened its first dedicated store in Singapore – Actus Hause – in collaboration with the owners of Japanese lifestyle store Atomi.
With over 70 stores in Japan, Actus’ forte lies in crafting furniture that has hints of Scandinavian and Japanese design.
Many of these high-quality, well-curated products are also designed with the Danish concept of “hygge” in mind.
“We spend a sizable amount of time at work. The last thing we’d want is to head home to a space that lacks warmth and comfort,” says Andrew Tan, owner of Actus Hause. The brand highlights the importance of choosing furniture pieces to create the right ambience in the home.
The newly opened store features home settings, such as the study and kids’ room. “These themed rooms help our customers better visualise the pieces in their homes, and we can better showcase the flexibility of use within the space,” adds Andrew. For example, some of the kid’s furniture ranges are designed to meet both current and future needs as children grow; modular components allow desks to be extended.
To complement the furniture and home furnishings in the store, Actus Hause will soon stock a wide range of lifestyle products, too, including personal grooming accessories, aromatherapy, gardening products, and selected food and beverage items.
Actus also offers interior coordination services where customers can specify customisation requests, with the option of choosing materials, dimensions and even shapes for selected furniture pieces, to suit their needs and home sizes.
Andrew shares that, aside from opening up more stores in the next three years, there are plans to open an Actus cafe in the pipeline. “It will be furnished and accessorised with Actus products, and customers can purchase them from an adjoining retail section,” he says.
As for the food, the menu will offer items inspired by Scandinavian and Japanese cuisines.
