Buy (And Rent!) Furniture From This Distinctly Filipino Brand
If you love local and want to put as much Filipino personality to your home as possible, here comes a brand that aims to reinterpret our heritage through a curated selection of pieces made available on their site.
Meet Manolo Living, a furniture company that develops products deeply rooted in local culture. Vintage lovers will take delight in furnishings that evoke familiarity and nostalgia, which can then be incorporated into modern designs.
"Quality is given in everything at the same time, we would like to be able to preserve those stories you told and the stories you will be making in the future and we do that by recreating it in your own space,” says Manolo Living brand manager Nina Opida.
Some of the must-haves are the iconic Tamaraw and the Bagobo chairs that help paint a picture of what Filipino culture is about. “It is important that we remember our past because it helps us shape who we are now—it makes us a better version of ourselves,” Nina adds.
Soon, Manolo Living will officially launch their products through their website at www.manololiving.com. Designer and Managing Director Joseph Rastrullo takes pride in the shop’s tagline, “Making time stand still,” and continues to explore similar aesthetics to maintain its main inspiration.
Apart from selling furniture, Manolo Living also provides interior services that include space planning, decorating, and interior painting, and also accepts design consultations. It will also open the business for event rentals—so now’s the best time to scroll through their social media accounts and website, to select the pieces that will complement your celebrations' themes.
