Modern Filipino design for a Two-Storey House
A young couple’s home filled with well-made furniture and interesting accent pieces
The defining factor that turns a house into a home is a reflection of the homeowner’s personality in the interiors. This can come in the form of quirky accessories that show the owner’s playful character or a fascinating display of personal collections. However, for couple Paolo and Issa Feliciano, who practically designed their own home, their sense of style can be seen in each piece of furniture and design element.
The resulting design is a startlingly distinctive home with a Modern Filipino vibe. Well-made furniture pieces from Pampanga and exporter Calfurn coexist with striking graphic elements. Filipino touches can be seen in solihiya furniture details and rattan textures. Each element in the home is interesting in its own right, but thanks to the couple’s solid design direction for their home, these pieces also work beautifully together.
