THINGS YOUR MOTHER THROW (TYMT) is a creative collaboration between Studio Shermano and Envelope Architects, an architectural practice specializing in bespoke designs for homes and apartments in Singapore. TYMT is a creative and research lab which pursues the endeavor to adapt and upcycle past designs and styles, to contemporary interiors.
The name THINGS YOUR MOTHER THROW was inspired to its founder as “an homage to all Mothers who throw things to keep the home in order and all Fathers who keep things so that we could play hide-and-seek in the house. And to the Singlish grammar, of course!”
Taking the cue from the British and Dutch furniture designs during the colonial times in the Nusantara region and the influences from the indigenous and migrant communities in the Southeast Asian region, THINGS YOUR MOTHER THROW intends to distill through its furniture, a sense of what it was like to live during the sedately colonial times and the tumultuous post war mid-20th century in Southeast Asia. TYMT aims to find a bridge that link the past with the present through the humble restored vintage pieces used by the common folks who lived during those times.
Things your Mother Throw has a fabulous collection of salvaged vintage and antique furniture, colorful handmade ceramic tiles as well as bespoke services.
Antiquing Tip Of The Day
Try to take a lap around the whole flea market before buying, and then work your way back. Some vendors swap out inventory over time, and a second look around can yield far more treasures than the first.
