At the cusp of the 1990s, Singapore witnessed tremendous growth in consumer sophistication, not just in retail but also in the lifestyle segment for furniture, lighting and accessories. The time was right to introduce better choices into the market and thus it was in October of 1989 that Mr Lim Choon Hong brought XTRA into being.
Originally sited in a pre-war conservation shophouse out in the suburbs, XTRA steadily gained reputation amongst discerning Singaporeans for its eclectic range of designers wares, and also for its sterling service and knowledgeability.
Today, XTRA has expanded its premises to two retail stores, including a 2,000 square metre showroom covering three levels at Park Mall, and have widened operations to cater especially to the Contract and Office markets.
From its earliest days, XTRA has been an active promoter of design culture in Singapore. Besides assembling a truly diversified collection, XTRA has also hosted a participated in a number of events to raise awareness of both popular and under-appreciated designers from all over the world.
Our focus us not restricted to any one direction; in addition to helping to introduce Spanish designs to the Singapore market, XTRA has also turned the spotlight onto the regional relents such as Indonesia's celebrated Jaya Ibrahim and Thailand's Suwan Laimanee. Amongst local design institutions, XTRA has also lent its advice and support to students.
