It sure is nice to come home to a well-lit and nicely decorated home after a long day at work.

American psychologist Abraham Maslow was on to something when he said that shelter is one of man’s basic needs, along with air, water, and food. How else would you explain the sense of relief and relaxation you get simply by lounging at home?

Their range of furniture and home accents come in clean lines and classic colors. Surprisingly, they also offer books that would be welcome additions to any coffee table. If you’re going for the ultra-modern and sophisticated look, this is the place to go.


Multi-awarded Filipino designer Ito Kish describes his style as “modern global Filipino.” That’s why indigenous materials like rattan, mahogany, and bamboo take center stage in his designs. He breathes new life to these materials, resulting in pieces that are truly Filipino while having a contemporary look and feel.

With the recent completion of their rebranding initiative, Kish now covers three distinct areas. Ito Kish is the retail arm of the brand, offering a curated mix of furniture and accessories sourced from all over the world. Ito Kish Home is the designer’s own line of furniture and furnishings which pays homage to different Philippine regions. Kish Interiors, lastly, offers personalized interior design services.

The Kish showroom is located at Nicanor Garcia St., Bel-Air, Makati.

Muji Philippines

Simplicity and subtlety are at the forefront of Zen design principles, which are fundamentally the Japanese principles of design. It is no wonder, then, that Muji retail stores are designed in a minimalist fashion. Now you can bring a similar calm and simplistic look into your home.

Aside from their usual line of clothes, toiletries, and stationery, Muji also carries furniture in selected outlets. To keep your home organized, they offer storage solutions such as transparent acrylic cases and ash wood shelves that can be used individually or stacked together. They also have no-frills dining ware and kitchen utensils that are meant to make the food the real star of your meal.


For a successful home décor project, first determine the aesthetic you’re going for. Is it minimalist, shabby chic, or vintage, perhaps? This way, you can narrow down your choices and not be overwhelmed with what’s on the market. You can also draw inspiration from TV shows, magazines, or the Internet before hitting the stores. Then, set up a budget to keep your spending in check.

When visiting home décor shops, ask the staff a lot of questions about the product you’re eyeing. They can advise you of its material, finish, and tips for proper maintenance.

As we, Filipinos, become more exposed to global influences, we also get to have more interior design styles to choose from to suit our tastes. And with lots of furniture and home décor shops in the metro, it should be a breeze to find the perfect pieces to make our homes a comfortable, don’t forget stylish, way to stay in.
