The Overview

United by their shared love of restoring old furniture, Tokyo native Megumi Wettstein and homegrown ad exec Liew Hwee Min came together to launch ReStore Living. Tucked in a prewar shop house in the historic Tanjong Pagar district, the cozy, laid-back space showcases the pair's hybrid creations—think pencil-leg chairs reupholstered with red tweed fabric, and teak dressers with three-way mirrors refreshed with a new coat of varnish. "Along the way, we added old plates and cups to our collection and we started thinking, Why not put them to use too?" explains Wettstein, and a café was added to the shop. When not scouring the island for discarded furniture objects, Wettstein and Liew take turns in the small kitchen, rolling out fresh bagels and waffles served on the retro dishware, all for sale.
