Ja­panese fur­ni­ture and ac­ces­sories re­tail store.

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. VISIT AC­TUS HAUSE AT # 04- 28 MAN­DARIN GALLERY, 333A OR­CHARD ROAD, TEL: 6887- 4138.
