Herry Chandra, owner of Melandas
With its origins in a single showroom in Singapore in 1999, Melandas has consistently grown in the region and will have nine showrooms in Jakarta by the end of the year. “Our concept is lifestyle furniture, and we’ve not only grown through our network of showrooms, but also in the affordable luxury brands from around the world that we stock. Beside our specialty, which is sofas, we also sell Italian and American brands,” says Herry Chandra, the owner of Melandas. Chandra describes Melandas as a fast-paced company that allows people to be able to experience luxury at reasonable prices. Melandas’s newest project includes a four-floor showroom in the DIPO building, West Jakarta, as well as its premium Lazy Boy line from the US and Italian brands such as Cattelan.
