About Us

A passion for India's colonial antiques
The Past Perfect Collection was established in 2007 upon arrival of the owners, Pieter and Marie-Hélène van Houten, in Singapore after a lengthy business, living and learning experience in India. During their travels to various parts of the country India’s colonial past intrigued them and a passion for collecting antique pieces dating from that era was born.

A stylish store in Singapore
Being one of Singapore’s most stylish antique furniture stores today, The Past Perfect Collection stands to offer an unrivalled choice of antique furniture from the British, Dutch and Portuguese era in India, as well as Indian antique furniture untouched by European style.

Quality comes first
At Past Perfect quality comes first and we personally select our antiques with great care. We work in close cooperation with professional and experienced suppliers across India and pay special attention to the condition, rarity and origin of each piece. Some may need some restoration, which is expertly done in India by a team of dedicated craftsmen. Only genuine antiques and of the highest quality are included in our collection.

East meets West
Our pieces are handpicked in the different regions in India as to be able to offer our customers a variety of styles of furniture. You will be amazed by the beauty of the combination of a distinctly Western design with an Oriental flair. It is definitely the high quality of the materials used, the handwork and the attention to detail that sets this furniture apart.
