When it comes to creating minimalist designs for a sleek and chic home, there’s no denying that Muji has the competition beat. Think clever designs that look so simple, but manage to be multi-functional as well (check out the Muji storage space at #3 for case in point).
With the Muji Official Store now on Shopee Singapore, we’re thrilled at the convenience of having these lust-worthy home items delivered to our doorstep! Here’s our pick of best-selling Muji products that made it into our mood board for creating our dream Muji-style home!
Muji furniture for a zen living room & bedroom space
1. Beads Sofa
The first step to creating a Muji-style home is to embrace open spaces and flexible interiors. Instead of choosing all-consuming sofa sets, pick portable options like this Muji Beads Sofa (available on MUJI Official Store). The sofa is filled with micro particle beads for a massaging effect that makes it perfect to sink into after a hard day’s work. This adjustable sofa can also take on any couch position you fancy for the day. Pair this with the Muji Covers for Beads Sofa (available on MUJI Official Store), which are sold separately.
This sleek yet quirky Muji Tricycle (available on MUJI Official Store) definitely sits high on the checklist for our Muji-style home. Have this as a statement art piece for your living room, or go wild and let your little ones (aged 2-6 years old) get on this cute tricycle. Yellow not your kind of fellow? The Muji tricycle is available in ivory and red, too!
3. Polypropylene Storage Case
A Muji-style home is all about using every bit of space in a clever and organised fashion –that includes the oft-forgotten area under your bed! Roll your clothes in the Muji Polypropylene Storage Case (available on MUJI Official Store) and stow them out of sight but still within easy reach. These storage cases are a great way to save space in your walk-in wardrobe too. An excuse to shop for more clothes, anybody?
4. Interior Fragrance Oil (Floral)
Take your home fragrance a notch up with some of the best Muji fragrance products like this Muji Interior Fragrance Oil (Floral) (available on MUJI Official Store). Place the rattan sticks into the neck of the bottle and let the aroma waft through your entire home. Each set contains eight rattan sticks, a gorgeous sea-green porcelain holder and a fragrance oil such as this floral blend of rose and chamomile. Spritz this in the air when hosting guests in your Muji-style home!

6. Acrylic 3 drawers storage box
Chodo-yoi is the notion of seeking the ‘right balance’, and is a handy guiding principle when creating a Muji-style home in Singapore. This Muji Acrylic 3 drawers storage case (available on MUJI Official Store) will bring balance and harmony to your workstation. The see-through drawers are perfect for storing everything from stationery to (healthy) snacks. Best part – you’ll know where everything is at a glance!
7. Small Circulator Fan (White)
Build a breezy Muji-style workstation with this Muji small circulator fan (available on MUJI Official Store). It’s designed in such a way that you’ll receive high output airflow without raking up your electricity bills. This minimalist fan also promises to keep the airflow in motion. Use this on its own or with the air-con on — a sure-fire remedy in Singapore’s recent warm weather spell.
8. Aroma Stone
Muji’s aroma diffusers have been all the rage, but if the thought of it leeching on your electricity all night scares you, then get this cute and more affordable Muji aroma stone (available on MUJI Official Store). Pour five to 10 drops of this Muji lavender essential oil (available on MUJI Official Store) onto the unglazed stone and let it diffuse the fragrant floral scent over your workstation area.
Muji skincare for your makeup table
9. Muji Sensitive Skincare Series Cleansing Oil
If you didn’t already know, Muji’s skincare line is as every bit lust-worthy as their other home items. The Muji Cleansing oil (available on MUJI Official Store) from their sensitive skincare series is gentle for use on sensitive skin, and can soothe a sudden flare-up. The cleansing oil is parabens and alcohol-free, and contains 100% pure botanical olive oil. Trusty beauty advisor Makeupalley rates this Muji Cleansing Oil 4.5 stars out of 5, a nod to the wonders of Japanese skincare.
10. Unbleached cotton pads
It’s not just what you put on your face, but what tools you use to apply it too. This set of Muji Unbleached Cotton (available on MUJI Official Store) is wonderfully soft, and is a lot more durable than its bleached counterparts. The all-natural cotton minimises skin irritation, so you can apply your toner worry-free. Comes in a set of 180 pads, shaped like fluffy pillows.
Muji snacks and gourmet food for your pantry
11. Chocolate coated strawberry
Strawberry dipped in rich white chocolate or pure matcha? We sure could snack on that. The Muji Chocolate-Coated Strawberry (available on MUJI Official Store) comes in a bundle of six decadent packs. These sweet fruity treats are definitely binge-worthy, and will make the perfect snack when watching your favourite Korean dramas.
12. Instant Yuzu & Honey
No Muji-style home would be complete without a dainty glass cup filled with a pretty-looking tea like yuzu cha. This refreshing drink can remedy your digestive problems and soothe sore throats. To prepare, scoop three teaspoons of Muji Instant Yuzu and Honey (available on MUJI Official Store) into a mug and pour boiled water over it. You can also enjoy cold — just add a little boiled water to dissolve the honey, before topping with cold water and ice cubes. Fancy a creamy ‘latte’? Switch out water for milk to get your very own barista concoction.
13. Pasta Sauce
Every foodie worth his or her salt knows the importance of having instant meals on hand to whip up something quick and tasty for the family on a busy day! This Muji Pasta Sauce (available on MUJI Official Store) is one of the best Muji products for days you don’t have the energy to meal prep. Choose from three flavours — squid ink, creamy sea urchin, or americaine (made with shrimp paste). All you have to do is mix this sauce into a cooked pan of pasta, add any garnish of choice and serve!
