Referencing the vibrant Peranakan culture, while subtly complementing the adjoining Capitol Theatre’s art deco bones, the curving walls, ceiling and round-edged, oak-covered counters are uniformly finished in white. This muted canvas allows the store’s ornate, Peranakan-inspired black-and-white tiled flooring to sing. Plantings extend a gentle invitation to pause and explore the calming interior.
