We’re massive fans of Forty two (just look at the beautiful marble table she got from the online store pictured above!).

Best of all, delivery is free if you spend above $300 (otherwise, a fee ranging from $7.90 to $19.90 will be charged). Smaller items can simply be picked up at their warehouse in Toh Guan.
