Beautiful furniture for the great outdoors

April 14, 2017

Looking to buy outdoor furniture for a second home or Singapore? Sometime ago my husband and went shopping for smart new outdoor furniture for our property in France. The old cane furniture had seen better days and we’d spotted the new woven synthetic material that’s meant to last for ages, and is easy to clean by a simple hose-down. Fast-forward seven years and take a look at the following shots of our beautiful pieces from Singapore furniture store OHMM.


At the time, OHMM was just three years old. The quality and design of its furniture was as good as some of the top brands we’d found in Europe but far more affordable, even with shipping costs from Singapore.  With a huge choice of finishing options as well as really amazing fabrics (the type that they use on yachts) that don’t fade and wash well at low temperatures, we were spoilt for choice.

OHMM Examples

We’d had the first set of sofas, chairs and tables for a couple of years and they still looked brilliant ,so we went back and for a new set of outdoor dining chairs, a bar and high stools. Two years ago we bought a second set of covers, just so we can change the look when we feel like it. The covers have worn really well.

The outdoor furniture in our French home has to withstand a lot of wear and tear as we also let the property. OHMM obviously doesn’t cut corners on the framing construction as ours has stood the test of time, looking as good today as the day it was delivered.

Furniture by OHMM

It’s interesting to note that OHMM owns and manages its own manufacturing facility, whereas most other brands outsource to contract suppliers. OHMM also manage everything from design through to construction and packing. Certainly when our pieces arrived in France there was no damage and everything was packed extremely well.

Example of other OHMM designs

OHMM uses premium materials including imported German Rehau® fibre and extruded virgin aluminum and combine this with top furniture craftsmen in Cebu, Philippines. As it is not a mass producer their levels of quality, finishing and attention to detail are unrivaled – even by the big brands.

We used different shipping firms to send our furniture to France. Talk to OHMM as it has preferred firms. Or contact one of the removal firms found Movers, Removals & Best Global International Relocation. Even buying and shipping the furniture to Europe was less expensive than buying in Europe with the added bonus of really good quality furniture.

OHMM fabric colour choice is wide and varied

We have just been to OHMM’s 10th anniversary party, and we are very happy to wish the company a big congratulations!
