Here is what they said about The Past Perfect Collection-

Best for Colonial Antiques
Love colonial-style furniture? Then visit The Past Perfect Collection in the Tan Boon Liat Building where British colonial antiques are the stars of the showroom. The collection bears the personal touch of the Dutch owners who travel to India and handpick original pieces that once adorned the stately colonial mansions. The store is filled with gorgeous top-quality antique furniture that has been restored to its former glory with exquisite polishing and fresh upholstery.

Pop along for great ideas on how to incorporate antique furniture into modern spaces, and don’t miss the gift-worthy silver collection, framed antique maps and luxury Good Earth tableware.

Top picks

  • Large travel chests are a perennial favourite – in particular, Dutch colonial chests, which are sturdy as well as extremely elegant. With their ornate brass locks and large brass keys, they offer practicality and style all in one.
  • Roll-top desks are very popular and date back to the 19th century when they were used by European settlers.
  • The store specialises in colonial dining tables – extending, circular or marble-topped, each one is ideal for happy gatherings with family and friends.
