Specially created for home or office interiors, The Little Island Collection has recently been extended with hand-painted 3D Wall Plaques. Each Little Island Wall Plaque is an outstandingly beautiful and detailed replica of the eclectic architectural facades of Singapore in the 20s and 30s.

Available in a choice of two wooden frames as well as styles, each Wall Plaque is designed to be displayed on walls, adding an elegant touch to the home or office. We present the Joo Chiat series here for your viewing pleasure. Just click on the small images below to take a closer look.

Joo Chiat Series

Joo Chiat Series
This area in Singapore might have long remained under swaying coconut palms and fruit trees owned by the wealthy Arab Alsagoff family, if Chinese landowner

Chew Joo Chiat had not acquired it, laid out roads and constructed rows of lovely terrace houses which still stand today.

Once bordered by picturesque kampongs (Malay villages) with musical names like Geylang Serai and Tanjong Katong, Joo Chiat boasts some of the finest examples of the Singapore eclectic style of architecture.

This happy marriage of Chinese and Western housing design is also called the Singapore Baroque.

Doric columns, western-style roofs, and brilliantly coloured wall tiles from Italy with flowers in relief, were wedded to Chinese facade panels depicting dragons and Chinese mythological animals which have no Western equivalent. All these elegant touches and more are captured in The Little Island 'Joo Chiat' series of Decorative Wall Plaques.
