Last Friday I visited the MaArte Bazaar (for the first time!) at 8 Rockwell. There were three home furniture and decor companies that I really loved. I want their pieces to be part of my home!
1.E. Murio Manila : Fine furniture, cabinets and accessories showcasing beautiful Filipino craftsmanship (www.emurio.com)
I’m such a big fan of bar carts and daybeds! So when I saw their bar carts, I couldn’t get over them! I first saw their booth at ArtifactPH in Alabang Town Center last July and I loved their daybed!

2. Clay Storytellers: Inspired by Cochiti Pueblo clay storytellers, Oaxacan and Peruvian clay figures but given a decidedly Filipino flavour (Claystorytellers.casasanpablo.com.ph)
Super adorable little terra cotta clay figures by An Mercado Alcantara. I particularly love her holy family and kids playing Filipino games.
There’s even a certificate of authenticity when you buy her piece

3. Balay ni Atong: Hand-woven textiles by Ilocano artisans on traditional wooden looms using weaving techniques passed on through generations (Balayniatong.com)
Their lamps are just so beautiful! It’s a combination of wood and hand-woven textiles and is definitely a conversation piece.
