LALA CURIO’S collection reflects humour and curiosity. Materials and techniques culled from across cultures and across time, are woven into unique creations and brought into the scene of your everyday living. Traditional motifs are found in contemporary frorms as cross-cultural characteristics collide elegantly. Rock crystal boxes, coral-woven chandeliers and the array of curiosities create a space that harkens back to the 16th century, when world-trekking collectors return from their travels with trinkets and treasures.

LALA CURIO was the featured designer for renowned Luxury Home Décor show, Maisonet Object Paris, at their first show in Asia held in Singapore this March. LALA CURIO was invited to design Maisonet object’s VIP  Club of 4,000sf, where the collections shown will be brought to TS1 Yangon.

LALA CURIO was founded  by Laura Cheung, a graduate of BFA in Interior Design at Parsons School of Design, New York City and Masters in Fine and Decorative Art from Sotheby’s Institute of Art, London.
