Many homeowners would tell us that it's daunting to furnish and complete a first home. With tons of options out in the market, how do you choose the best bed, table, or chair? As if these decisions aren't hard enough to make, you also need to take into consideration the budget that you can allot for these essentials.

To help homeowners—including those who are renovating or improving their spaces, designer Ito Kish came up with f1rst—a place where things are kept simple and affordable.

Officially opened to the public yesterday, December 10, f1rst is a quintessential retail space of curated finds perfect for the young nester. Each piece from this new Kish collection evokes a stylish yet timeless spirit fit for the forward-thinking millennial.

Aside from quality at reasonable prices, the store also assures homeowners that the pieces can keep up with the latest trends. The store can also deliver the pieces and help you assemble your furniture.

Make your first furniture pieces count and visit f1rst at the 2nd level of LRI Design Plaza, Makati City. For updates, check out their website or follow them on Instagram. The store is open from Monday to Saturday, 10am-7pm.
