5.1.2 Location

Marina Bay Sands

International Furniture Fair Singapore Pte Ltd is the organizer of the event.

5.2 Features

The IFFS has furniture, interior décor, lighting, and much more exhibitors. It is a whole package and does not neglect any aspect of the table and the things surrounding it. Many designs at the exhibition are not exhibited anywhere else, and the variety is more than enough. Personally, the best thing about it has to be the diverse nature of the pieces and the cultural aspect of the work. It is for those looking for modern and cultural simultaneously.


It is essential to mention that what one observes at such exhibitions can vary each year. It depends mainly on the exhibitors and the organizers with what direction they choose to take things in. The goal is to learn, understand and appreciate the beauty of the furniture and interior. All the exhibitions have proven exceptional at that for years and hopefully will be for years to come.
