Step into a psychedelic home — a three-bedroom condominium in Sengkang — filled with a retro style and designer classics, coming together to reflect the vibrant nature and bold, outgoing personality of its owners.
The home, although filled with many things amassed over two decades, has an orderly look, thanks to the way the homeowners decided to “colour block” the interiors.
They also engaged interior designer Kevin Teng of The Safe Haven in 2017, to carry out a basic functional renovation with new structures to match the look, and that would allow Alvin’s collection to take centre stage.
1970s retro-inspired house
It is furnished with around 400 vintage furniture pieces, from chairs and turntables to lava lamps and decor pieces.
Iconic design classics, such as an original 1950s George Nelson Marshmallow sofa, Eero Aarnio Ball chair and Louis Poulsen table lamps, can be spotted throughout.
But besides both vintage and newly manufactured designer pieces from the era, Alvin collects anything and everything that looks retro and space age in style, he says.
