Yep, why not if they offer great quality and design (at attractive prices)? These are my 5 favourite local brands (for tablewares & furnitures) in no particular order:
HTL acquired Domicil in 2005, and in Singapore they have a Domicil showroom at:
Address: 11 Gul Circle, Singapore 629567
Tel: 6863 0555
Apart from brand new sofas, they also have display sets that can be great bargains. Decent leather quality and designs. XZQT also carry some exclusive Domicil models. Domicil also have some solid wood dining room sets and shelves (nice but pricey!) that they just started in collaboration with Nathan Yong the last time I was there.
They produce loads of dining room sets. Their showroom is a great place to pick up display sets at really good prices. If you are lucky, you can come across nice wooden tables (with matching chairs) that probably cost 50% of the retail price for a similar table elsewhere. Some small cabinets, side tables and outdoor sets too. Showroom is at:
Address: 28 Defu Lane 4 Singapore 539424
Hours: 10 am to 6pm
Koda has expanded into the furniture retail scene with their 1st showroom (Commune) at Millennia Walk. Nice and affordable furniture. Too bad they only expanded after my reno. Oh well.
Commune store: #02-51 Millenia Walk, Raffles Boulevard, Tel: 6338 3823.

Helmed by Nathan Yong, Grafunkt has a small but nice collection of furniture. I prefer the larger store at Playfair road over the small outlet at Park Mall:
Address: Grafunkt Flagship Store
85 Playfair Road, #02-01 Tong Yuan Industrial Building, Singapore 368000
T 6281 8465
Opening Hours: Daily 12noon – 6pm
4. Air Division
Nice but pricey… then again solid walnut furniture doesn’t come cheap. As usual, I prefer the larger store at Wilkie Road over the small outlet at Park Mall:
Address: Flagship store @ 28 Wilkie Road, #01-01 Sophia Flats, Singapore 228051
Tel: +65 6336 0662
If you want to get good china tableware, look no further than Landex. It is the maker of Luzerne New Bone china with a customer list that reads like fine hotels of the world (READ HERE). Interested? You can buy the china from the Landex store at 30% to 50% off the retail price.
Address: 70 Bendemeer Road, Luzerne #01-03 Singapore 339940.
Tel: +65 6288 7700
I bought stuff for my place from 3 of the stores. So patriotic right?
