The Moongi Project
The buzz: Indian food entrepreneur and antique collector Amit Chillal opens a vintage lifestyle boutique that feels like a mini museum chockfull of curios.
The vibe: Low-key and unpretentious. The setup is as basic as it gets—just plain concrete ﬂoor and pale yellow walls—but the eclectic range of products is enough to charm.
The goods: Mostly small, one-of-a-kind pieces like a French medicinal bottle ($26), an antique cast iron ($55) and vintage wine barrels ($169 upwards), sourced directly from artisans all over the world. There’s also a handful of restored furniture, including a hand-painted cabinet from India ($749).
Why you’ll be back: Prices aren’t just affordable—they’re up for negotiation too (extremely rare for a shop within Orchard Road). Stocks are also updated weekly so there are always new items to purchase. Plus, their service staff go out of the way to satisfy customers, like providing free delivery and customization tips.
