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 colonial furniture from the British, Dutch and Portuguese era in India.

Imagine the romance of colonial European style courting Indian craftsmanship! These pieces can add that special character to your home, silently speaking to you of a bygone era.

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.
