Hi Bigtoes, really nice home you have. Love the chandeliers of yours, may I know where and how much were those? Thanks.


New Member
D.O.G, thanks
Which chandeliers were u referring to? The ones in the study/MBR were from Boston (yes, i checked them in the flight & had hubby rewire (different voltage)) - its from a company called Bombay co (they have a website, just google for the address). Chandeliers in the states are really cheap, but most dont ship outside of the US, so no point unless you intend to make a trip there.
The other 2 (lounge/dining) were from Laura Ashley - we got from the outlet in Suntec City (ground floor), think it was $500+ for the smaller one, $800+ for the larger one.

Yah, abit overpriced cos its from UK, so the price was converted from pounds.The ones from US were value for money, think about S$400 each!! Anyway, maybe u want to try Ikea, i know they have some wrought iron chandeliers, really nice, and reasonably priced!

Hi All

have sent my house pics to those who hve requested. Am truly sorry for the very late reply.

I have not been around the forum for quite some time and did not check this thread until recently.

Btw, these pics were taken during CNY this year. So the updated pics will be posted sometime early next year.

Like star, our place has alot of wood as well, but more of a mix-match with loads of stuff from all over rather than clean lines.
