WALL ART IN JOO CHIAT

WALL ART IN JOO CHIAT

You may have heard of, or seen, the amazing Ernest Zacharevic street mural on the corner of Everitt North Road and Joo Chiat Terrace in the Joo Chiat heritage neighbourhood.

It was a stone's throw away from our original showroom location and we were big fans. It inspired us to create our own piece of wall art and so we have just unveiled "the Power Plant"; a comment on the interrelationship between people and plants in our modern towns and cities.

The Power Plant stands inside our showroom at 33 Tembeling Road, providing inspiration for us and our visitors. Come and check it out next time you visit. Selfies are free ;)

Our huge thanks to Danielle Tay for creating this beautiful piece of art. We love it and hope you will too!

Introducing Tumbleweed’s new projects and corporate sales manager!

Her name is Michelle and she will be the person to speak to if you are:

  • Launching a new office or shop
  • Organising an event
  • Interested in running a workshop

or doing anything else where you need indoor plants, planters or plant design services with style.

She’ll also be running Tumbleweed’s “second showroom” in the CBD at the Providore, OUE Downtown, B1. She’ll normally be there Monday-Friday lunchtimes, between 12:00-14:00, to help you with any plant or product questions. Let her know if you have any specific requests and she'll do her best to get you what you're looking for. 

We’re going to be moving our display later this month to the retail area, nearer to the gyms, next to the To Be Calm stall and will be refreshing it daily with new plants. We’ve got plans for workshops, Xmas promotions, corporate gifts and other indoor plant related stuff that you City folks will love.

So contact Michelle for beautiful plants and stylish planters in the CBD and for any project and event needs. We look forward to helping you brighten up your homes, offices and events soon!
