With a base in both Singapore and the UK, Saira and Shanti source vintage oil paintings and handcrafted decorative objects and antiques from markets and auctions around Britain and Europe in order to bring a beguiling mix of unique, eclectic, and affordable pieces to homes, collections, and interior projects.
We started off with a focus on the Singapore market (where both of us grew up), selling vintage and antique paintings that add personality, warmth and charm to the usual ‘shiny, contemporary and new’ style that has characterised many of Singapore’s urban developments. Although this continues to be our main motivation, we have now expanded our reach beyond Singapore and sell our works internationally.
Check back in when you can because we are always scouring Britain and Europe for more beautiful pieces and will regularly be adding items to our shop. Sign up to our mailing list and follow us on Instagram (@discerningpalette) to get updated every time we do.
