Take A Look At These Pinoy Designer Chairs In Celebrity Homes
These celebs choose stunning Pinoy designer pieces to add style and character to their homes
Filipino celebrities’ homes are usually resort-like spaces with all the trappings of luxury hotels. But aside from the fantastic architecture and interior design, it may surprise you to find out that a lot of celebrity icons love to patronize local furniture designers. Here, we give you a round-up of these notable people, whose photos will inspire you to #buylocal instead of getting imported brands.
The Ang Probinsyano star’s sprawling tropical home is chock-full of Filipino furniture designs. Just look at his pool cabana, which is filled with Pinoy design pieces, like the Bloom Chair by design superstar Kenneth Cobonpue. The flamboyant piece, which is made of upholstered fabric petals and which resembles a flower, accents the mostly neutral room.
Recently, Coco was also spotted using another incredible piece: the Gridsen Chair by Industria. We’re sure that this will make a great addition to his existing collection!
If you follow Heart on Instagram, aside from her beautiful table settings and stylish OOTDs, you’ll definitely see photos of her lounging in the designer chairs inside her own home. One of her favorites seems to be visual storyteller Ito Kish’s Julia high back chair, which is made of rattan or PE plastic on a metal frame. This black-and-white version of the Julia perfectly matches Heart’s outfit!
It’s always fun watching Solenn and her husband Nico Bolzico in their hilarious vlogs and Instagram posts. But another thing we love about this couple is their design style, seen both in their former home and in their current one. In the condo where they used to live, some parts of which we’ve spotted in their videos, the relaxing balcony is furnished with show-stopping A. Garcia chairs and the modern-boho Alegra Swing Chair by Cebu designer Vito Selma.

The singer-and-songwriter couple’s home is a tropical-modern dream designed by architect Anthony Nazareno and interior designer sisters Ivy and Cynthia Almario, and is the perfect backdrop for stunning furniture pieces like Kenneth Cobonpue’s red Yoda Chair. The Yoda uses the natural tension of the material, and the rattan “spokes” actually conform to your back.
Located on the couple’s lanai is another Cobonpue piece, the Lolah Capsule Chair. Made out of rattan and fitted with a loose, upholstered seat, the enveloping sides of the chair form a cocoon for the sitter to cozily lounge in.
