Onestop’s Founders Share Their Story With CNA Luxury

News & Events

On 14 November, our founders were interviewed by CNA Luxury about the rise of onestop and their business ventures in the Maldives. University buddies Shaffiq Olia and Sung Tze Yang were exploring potential business ideas and received a suggestion from an architect to consider going into furniture production. From then, they didn’t look back. Now, they have worked on about 30% of the resorts in the Maldives.

After landing their first job, they were quickly introduced to other resorts who heard great things about their custom-made furniture. By cutting out the middleman and working directly with furniture makers, resorts quickly became open to the idea as it allows them to save cost while having quality furniture. To date, onestop has worked on around 45 properties in the Maldives including the critically acclaimed Crossroads Maldives, Niyama Private Islands, Waldorf Astoria Maldives and The Nautilus Maldives.


To help them with the furniture production, they acquired two in-house production facilities in Guangdong, China and Solo, Central Java, Indonesia. Working in deeper regions of Central Java also enabled them to offer a wider range of furnishing options while keeping the cost down so that they can meet their client’s budget.

Locally in Singapore, they have also been involved in the refurbishment of Capella Singapore and provided furnishings for Mandarin Orchard and Jigger & Pony. As the world begins to open up post Covid-19, onestop will be looking forward to more projects be it in Singapore, the Maldives, or the rest of the world.
