My first impression of Franc Franc. Wow those are the biggest chairs ever. Wonder what it would be like to sit in one. Probably pretty awesome and I would have that Alice in Wonderland feeling.
After looking around I was not that impressed. Maybe I expected a Japanese brand to be of top notch quality and these seemed a little shabby. Guess I was also expecting a lot more after the hype and the seemingly long wait for the store to finally open. It’s a bit like a Japanese version of Ikea. Like a Uniqlo but with furniture instead. There were some items in there that I would have liked to look at some more, but we were in a hurry. There’s always next time and there’s another branch at JCube so I will definitely have a chance to check it out again. Meanwhile, this is what I saw and I’ll point out the stuff I quite liked.
Pink! I don’t like all shades of pink though. Some are quite yucky. And no matter how much I try to teach B about shades of pink I don’t like he still hasn’t got it. But he’s probably not that bothered about it and probably not listening.
These simple white cups and mugs greatly appealed to me. But a small cup at S$12 was a tad expensive. Ikea has better prices.
B liked the S$40 tea set. The tea pot had a strainer too. But I prefer plain designs unless it’s a sweet floral print. The pot had Micky Mouse prints on it and came in blue and red too. Shucks – no pink? Made me wonder if these are from Tokyo Disneyland or a collaboration?
