Ever since I posted Vee’s 3 years 3 months old update, several Mummies have been asking me where to buy Montessori furniture and materials. Let’s start with the furniture first.
Here are some suppliers I found in Malaysia and Singapore:

- Website: http://www.ikea.com/my/en/
- Address: No.2 Jalan PJU 7/2, Mutiara Damansara, 47800 Petaling Jaya, Selangor Darul Ehsan, Malaysia
What I bought:
- TROFAST toy storage series in pine wood, option to use with the boxes or wooden planks (as shelves)
- I couldn’t find any low long shelves suitable for Montessori homeschool at IKEA
- TROFAST boxes: suitable to store toys / materials / supplies; small boxes as sensory bins or the day’s activities; easy to rotate because they slide into the frame instead of being stacked up on one another
- The TROFAST wooden planks can easily slide in and out of the frame, so the child may be distracted by it
Here’s a picture shared previously at Mummy’s Reviews:
1. New Age Kidz
- Website: http://www.newagekidz.com
- Tel: +65 6748 9060
- Address (Showroom): 3023 Ubi Road 3 #05-15A UbiPlex I Singapore 408663
2. IKEA Singapore – Alexandra and Tampines
Tips to buying homeschool furniture:
- Measure your room and sketch a map with dimensions before visiting the showroom or shopping online
- Google for “kindergarten furniture malaysia” or “kindergarten furniture singapore”
- Ask preschool / Kindergarten staff to refer you to the school’s supplier
- If possible, buy direct from manufacturer or distributor for best prices
- Try to keep to plain or wooden colours (instead of colourful shelves). This helps the materials look more attractive. (On hindsight, I find the TROFAST red boxes too “loud” in the classroom.)
If you’ve more shops to add to this directory, please mention them in the comment box below. Thank you!
