There may be fewer fancy events to wear an intricate cheongsam to these days, but lots more chances to luxuriate in extravagant furniture with lavish Asian elements in the comfort and safety of home. A perfect pivot for lauded modern cheongsam designer Priscilla Ong Shunmugam, who branched out into homeware earlier this year with the Suvarnabumi tableware range. Last week, she launched her Suvarnabumi Rattan collection, a rattan furniture series that, like all things from Ong Shunmugam, only sounds deceptively traditional and simple. The OS twist is that while respecting the rattan craft's tradition and style, there are surprising elements such as the use of fabrics and batik, which fans of the dressmaker will find very familiar, making for pieces that feel traditional, luxe and modern all at the same time.
Here are all the pieces in the collection.
