Founded in 2010, Arete Culture began as a quick and affordable interior styling service. Headed by Caroline Chin-Geyler, Arete Culture’s portfolio includes interior staging, home consultations, and complete interior overhauls done within two days. In 2013, Arete Culture launched its first soft furnishings collection, The Luxe Hotel Collection, a fully customisable, bespoke range of artwork, lighting, cushions, and other home accessories.
In addition to our styling services, we also operate two retail showrooms that embody our core philosophy of affordable luxury. Comprising an extensive range of home accessories and soft furnishings from handmade mirrors and affordable art to hand-built console tables and lighting solutions, our curated product selection offers discerning shoppers versatile and functional items to suit a wide range of decorating styles. We also operate two warehouse/assembly studios for our interior styling projects, as well as a local workshop/design studio where our in-house line of furniture is made.
