Do you ever wonder where everyone gets their furniture? Like where did they get that modern wingback with the forest green velvet? She got an Eames chair, how? I need a Papa Bear chair for that empty corner in my sala.

There are actually a lot of great brands and stores around Metro Manila, that stock up on beautiful various furniture for your home. Some of them are even homegrown local brands who create amazing Filipino integrated designs of quality. 

So you don’t necessarily have to ship that 3 piece sofa set all the way from a small town in Italy. Some brands can even customize based on your requirements. As long as they have the materials, it’s never a problem!


Here's rounded up list of our favorite picks:

1. Artesania

Artesania. Wooden dining table with a brown wooden chair

If you walk into Artesania, you wouldn’t think that you’re in a showroom, which is the goal of their entire space. They serve amazing dishes of pasta, soup, and salads for starters, which follows in with their whole branding, of locally sourced ingredients. So you can shop for furniture while you eat; the convenience! Their pieces are all made by seasoned artisans based in Rizal, who specialize in woodworking, metalworking, and rattan weaving. Ps. They customize!

2. Crate & Barrel

Bedroom with a wooden bed frame with messy peach colored linens and creamy interiors

For some reason every Crate & Barrel store you walk into, magically transports you into an entirely different country. Think Sleepless in Seattle vibes. They have everything you’d ever want and need for your kitchen to your bedroom.

3. Urban Abode

Common Home showroom with plants and a brown leather sofa with wooden table accents

Upon entering their showroom, you’re greeted with an entire rustic, industrial yet modern, posh vibe. Unlike the usual modern contemporary look we’re currently used to, Urban Abode takes it up a notch. Brimmed around their furniture, they also have curious idyllic lighting and accessories. Besides selling unique modern furniture, they do interior designing as well.
