Part of the iconic Proof Living Group in South East Asia, Crate & Barrel is the destination for contemporary and modern furniture, housewares and decor that help people Welcome Life In. The homeware market has seen some significant transformation and growth through COVID, exploring new digital channels to active brands & consumer engagement through to conversion.

Our Singapore team partnered with Samuel Stephen Wright, Hwee Shan Chia, Yong Peng Tan and the Proof Living team to create a new Crate & Barrel site for the Singapore and Malaysia markets. Built on Shopify Plus, the tech stack also includes Shopify POS, Yotpo, Hubspot, Hoolah, Atome, GrabPay and Apple Pay.

Omnichannel implementation around complex inventory rules, and multi-location inventory.

Large SKU base where some products were available for both Store Pickup as well as Home Delivery and Pre-Order. Being able to distinguish which products should be made available for store pick up or home delivery.


Use of Shopify Product Variant structure for different inventory locations, implementing conditional display rules and Shopify Shipping Scripts to handle Delivery Rates.

Addressing the impact of covid on customer purchase behaviour.

The arrival of covid and subsequent lockdowns saw a huge jump in online sales, particularly in the homeware category as consumers were naturally spending more time at home. However, consumers needed the confidence to buy large items online without first having the opportunity to experience them in the showroom.


A seamless data integration between the online store, the ERP and Shopify POS empowered sales associates could easily log in and access or modify the information as needed—in real-time. There is also a seamless flow of data now since the company was able to integrate its existing ERP system and connect different applications across the business.

An efficient template for regional and portfolio expansion.

Although the initial brief was to develop a Shopify Plus Online Store for Singapore, OD also needs to account for other Southeast Asian markets, starting with Malaysia as well sister brand, CB2.


Overdose used a smart approach to design ideation and adaptation and Shopify Plus gave us the flexibility to design for multiple brands and markets.

"COVID-19 proved to be a giant wake-up call for us. We decided to revamp everything, from our website to our loyalty platform to our design tools. We were determined to come out of this lockdown having reinvented ourselves in the hopes that we would be able to create an omnichannel experience for everybody. Overdose’s Complete Commerce offering made them the perfect partner to help us transform our online business."

The Crate & Barrel Singapore site was missing the brand story that communicates minimalist lifestyle design. We made sure besides communicating the brand story, the user journey was well crafted both on desktop and more importantly on mobile. With a wide range of products and categories, users must have a guided journey when browsing through the site, hence the tiered mega-menu with visual cues. There is also the challenge of offering to users the different kinds of services that Crate & Barrel provides to their customers which we’ve communicated subtly and seamlessly throughout the site.
