The blitz of showroom openings this year has us spoilt for choice—vote for the showroom with the most inspiring interior design here
Now into its fourth edition, the Tatler Design Awards will include for the first time, a new Readers’ Choice segment, which includes the accolades for the Best Living Room, Best Bespoke Concept and the Best Luxury Concept.
We will also introduce a new award category entitled the Best Showroom, inspired by the successful blitz of luxury boutiques and flagships that have opened this year. These venues convey the unique philosophy of each brand while providing elegant vignettes that showcase their collections in residential-inspired settings.
The winners of the Tatler Design Awards 2020 will be announced in the February 2020 issue of Singapore Tatler Homes; online voting for the Best Showroom will close on 20 December. Scroll through the nominated entries here and vote for your favourite project in the form below:

The Italian furniture and kitchen manufacturer moved to Winslandt House in August, showcasing its furniture and kitchen collections within settings inspired by luxury residences in collaboration with homegrown retailer P5. A studied mix of furnishings and decorative elements, combined with the clever use of lighting systems (such as the innovative CoeLux skylight that recreates the sensation of daylight) creates intimate and cosy alcoves throughout the showroom.
