About Us

Singapore’s finest antique store specialises in antique colonial furniture dating back to the British, Dutch and Portuguese era in India. It was established in 2007 by the owners Pieter and Marie-Hélène van Houten, who are passionate antique collectors. They personally select the pieces and have them restored to their former glory in India before they are shipped to Singapore.

Visit the airy showroom in the historic Tiong Bahru area and be transported back in time. Just imagine the romance of colonial European style courting Indian craftsmanship! Antique colonial furniture adds that special character to your home, silently speaking to you of a bygone era.

A worldwide antique store, The Past Perfect Collection offers international shipping and the online store is full of beautiful detailed pictures to assist buyers from outside Singapore.



The Indo-Dutch furniture style is characterised by the combined use of light and dark coloured wood and the decoration often inspired by the Dutch Tulip.
