A Look Back at KWYM Interior Designs

In the backdrop of raising two small children, Lionel Ng, our dedicated Managing Director, found himself with no alternative but to chart a course for success. In the embryonic stages of his journey, Mr. Ng tirelessly dialed numbers, reaching out to flat owners, companies, and architects, and spent two arduous months going door-to-door in a relentless pursuit of income-generating opportunities. Despite his tireless efforts, success remained elusive.

Then, as if fate had finally smiled upon him, a remarkable turn of events occurred. He received a long-awaited callback that would alter the course of his fortunes. Mr. Ng rushed to the prospective client’s location, harnessed his passion to present his vision on his computer, and clinched a remarkable $30,000 interior design deal on the spot. Fast forward 15 years, and Mr. Ng’s journey has propelled him far beyond his humble beginnings as a Navy cook during his six-year service, ultimately ascending to the esteemed position of Chief Chef on board vessels, and ultimately becoming the Managing Director of a flourishing interior design firm.

“Our origins may have been humble, but our unwavering commitment to delivering exceptional work has served as the compass guiding our journey. Through the many challenges we have encountered, we have forged our path forward through a potent blend of teamwork and innovation.”

Today, KWYM stands as a testament to our dedication. Over the past decade since our inception in 2009, we have successfully completed thousands of renovation projects for both residential and commercial clients. This wealth of experience has endowed us with a profound understanding of the intricacies of this industry. We approach each project with unwavering enthusiasm, recognizing that no two renovation endeavors are identical. Each client carries a unique dream and vision for their space, and we are honored to be the ones who breathe life into those dreams.”

Fifteen years ago, we embarked on a transformative journey with a powerful vision. Our aim was to redefine homes and spaces, infuse them with creativity and precision, and transform living spaces into expressions of art and functionality. Today, as we stand at the threshold of two decades in this ever-evolving industry, we proudly affirm that we haven’t merely upheld our vision; we have transcended it in myriad ways.

Throughout these years, KWYM has adapted and thrived in the dynamic realm of interior design, navigating trends, technological advancements, and ever-evolving client expectations. Yet, our commitment to excellence, our passion for creativity, and our dedication to precision have remained resolute.

Our journey has been a voyage of growth and learning. We’ve discovered that every project, regardless of its scale, holds the potential to be a masterpiece. Collaboration, both within our team and with our clients, is the key to turning visions into reality. We’ve embraced innovation and adaptability as essential tools in an industry that continually stretches its boundaries.

The past few years have delivered unprecedented challenges to individuals, businesses, and communities worldwide.
