Our Story


State of Matters started out as a passion project for our 2 co-founders in 2017, who were looking to fill their home with houseware that are beautiful, well-made yet affordable. While traversing the streets on an overseas trip, they noticed the use of Aykasa Folding Crates in multiple cafes - which were functional and versatile with many fun colours. This became the first product that State of Matters carried and as Aykasa’s sole distributor in Singapore.  

Now, we are a team of five, who met way back in college in 2010. Beyond our shared values as friends, we converged on the ambition to expand the search for homeware we loved and from businesses we feel connected with; which hopefully you will love too. As friendship is at the core of running this business, we strive to build the same with patrons of State of Matters and the businesses we collaborate with.

Our philosophy is that we all share a common desire to make our house a beautiful home; function does not need to be at the expense of aesthetics, and neither does it have to be expensive. We are excited to be able to curate your home with you. 

With love,
Your Homies from State of Matters
