JUST TWO QUESTIONS
Based in Singapore, we're an online marketplace selling stylish, high quality home decor and lifestyle accessories from some of the finest artisans and exciting new designers in the surrounding Asia Pacific region.
We aim to highlight the creativity and craftsmanship endemic around us and have combined our passion for beautifully designed products and our belief in supporting ethical practices to curate a collection of truly wonderful items we simply love, all of which have been made with love.
We hope you love them as much as we do.
We believe it's the little things that make a difference, that's why we've focussed our collection on eye catching accessories, beautifully designed goods that add a little something special to the everyday.
Whilst we like to keep an eye on trends, we don’t subscribe to following the status quo. We love to mix and match styles and genres and believe the clothes we wear, and the items we fill our home with are an extension of our own unique personality.
We love nothing more than unearthing something truly special and different from the things found on every high street. That's why we're constantly in search of wonderful new products from little known makers, products that not only stand out, but have soul and a good story.
But we don’t buy just anything we like the look of. Whilst we’re in awe of creativity and great design, we’re increasingly conscious about the negative way many things are produced and sold today. We believe in championing craftsmanship and keeping timeless traditions alive; supporting small businesses and fuelling the livelihoods of talented individuals; equality, fair trade and profit for all; driving sustainability, minimising unnecessary overheads, reducing carbon footprint and doing our bit to help preserve the environment.
With that in mind, where we can we try and buy sustainably produced goods from source so we get to know more about who makes them, how they're made and ensure our purchases directly support their ongoing creative endeavours.
WHY SHOP WITH US
Unlike a lot of other marketplaces currently operating, we won't sell just anything.
Hailing from Europe, and with backgrounds in interior design and marketing, we have come to appreciate the amazing creativity and entrepreneurialism within Singapore and the surrounding Asia Pacific region. We've discovered a wealth of diversely talented craftsmen producing not only beautifully designed products that challenge anything being made in the rest of the world today, but embracing ethical methods of production.
We’re a bit in awe of them and what they do and believe they deserve a global platform to sell their craftsmanship to, that's why we opened our shop.
Each item listed has been purposefully handpicked by us based on two simple criteria, or rather just two questions.
“DO WE LOVE IT?”
Simply put, would we proudly have it on display in our own homes? There’s no set formula, we just know when something catches our eye whether we love it.
“HAS IT BEEN MADE WITH LOVE?”
Whilst we appreciate great design, we’re not swayed purely by an item’s aesthetic appeal. We always seek out the story behind the product - we get to know who made it, why they do what they do and how they produce their goods. We want to be sure no people or planet were adversely affected during the production of an item. No matter how good it looks, if it’s not been made with love, we won’t sell it. Click on any product we feature and you’ll find details explaining why we’re endorsing it.
We’re on a mission to compile a list of the most stylish and beautifully crafted home decor and lifestyle goods we can find, and we know we've only just scratched the surface of what’s being produced from this wonderful region. As such we're constantly on the lookout for new designers and products to share with you. If you want to be made aware of latest arrivals as and when they come in, please sign up for our newsletter. Otherwise check back regularly to see what’s new in store.
HOW IT WORKS
As an online marketplace, you can browse a range of gorgeous products from multiple designers located across Asia Pacific and buy through one simple secure transaction on our site. Prices are listed in SGD.
For more information on orders, shipping and returns, see below.
With no additional warehouse space needed to store goods and no unnecessary extra transportation required, we’re helping not only minimise the carbon footprint of each product you buy, but also reducing a lot of the overheads and inflated costs associated with traditional high street retail outlets, ensuring more money goes back to fuelling creativity, sustaining traditions and supporting livelihoods of the wonderful craftsmen and women featured.
Placing an order with Just Two Questions is easy. When you find something you love, choose the number of that item you wish to buy and click add to your basket. You can then go straight through to payment or continue having a browse through the wonderful selection of products from other makers featured across the rest of the site.
When you get to Checkout, any additional shipping costs will be clearly stated. Shipping costs can vary according to destination, so to double check the correct cost is showing, enter country the goods will be shipped to in Calculate Shipping. This will automatically be done on the next page when you enter the shipping address.
To complete the transaction, just enter your billing and shipping details so we know where to send your goods to. To proceed to payment you'll need to agree to our Terms of Service.

As soon as you click on Place Order and payment has been received, you will receive an email from us confirming your order. This order also goes straight through to that maker(s) who will then despatch your goods directly to you from source. Please note that because each item is sent to you by its individual maker, if you buy items from multiple makers, they will arrive separately.
At the moment we don’t have a call centre so all transactions and communication needs to go through the site. But we’re here to help, so if you have a question, please email us and we’ll get back to you as soon as humanly possible.
Each product is sent to you directly from its maker, minimising unnecessary transportation time and costs. Most items are ready to be despatched within a few working days, if there’s a production lead time, this will be highlighted under Shipping next to the product, so do check.
Most of our makers will ship anywhere, any restrictions will be clearly stated. The cost and time for delivery is based on weight of the item and distance it has to travel, which will be shown at checkout. Because our makers are located in different countries, their methods and options for transportation will vary, so again, please read the Shipping details next to each product. If you’ve bought multiple items, from different producers, bear in mind they will be sent directly to you from source, so will arrive as separate parcels, and at different times.
Please note that all international customers are responsible for any duties and import taxes incurred and any return shipping costs. If you are paying through your PayPal account, you can activate a Refunded Returns service, click here for more information.
All of our makers take great pride in what they produce and will always ensure the goods that leave their hands are in perfect order and suitably packaged for the journey ahead. When it arrives, we hope you love your purchases as much as we do.
Because all of the products are made by hand there may be slight variations in every piece, these variations are part of the handmade beauty and not considered a fault. We always endeavour to accurately display all product images to represent the final finish, however if there is a significant discrepancy between the representation and the finished product, a fault with the item or it's been damaged in transit, please let us know straight away by email and provide photographic evidence of the issue.
Our standard policy is to offer either a free replacement or issue a full refund (excluding cost of shipping), providing we are notified and items are returned within 7 days of receipt. There are a few exceptions so do check the Returns section next to each product. You must send the product directly to the appropriate maker, in unused condition, with all original packaging. You are responsible for the cost of postage and packing to return the goods, and please ensure you use a trackable or signed-for delivery service such as registered post, as we cannot credit your account until the item has been received. Any refunds will be transferred back to the original payment method.
Please note that any item that is not in the same condition as it was shipped will not be accepted as a return. Sale items are not refundable. If you are exchanging an item, you may incur additional shipping charges to send the replacement item back to you.
