RL News: Crate & Barrel Opens Its Flagship Store in SM Makati

At 2,800sqm, the new location will be the international retail chain's largest store in the Philippines


After opening its first store at the Mega Fashion Hall last year, there's no stopping Crate & Barrel from offering timeless home furnishings to the Philippine market. A couple of months after the official opening of their SM Aura Premier store, the well-loved brand opened its largest store in the Philippines at the SM Annex in Makati City.

Being the flagship store in the country, the new store was designed with aesthetic and convenience in mind. The architecture features materials such as warm-toned wooden siding, glass and brick for the exteriors complementing the cedar, pickled pine and painted white wood interior. Aside from offering the quality furnishings and home solutions that Crate & Barrel is known for, the new store will also showcase the brand's "Shore" Spring Collection and other signature collection of houseware, seasonal accessories and a complete line of indoor and outdoor furniture.

For more than 50 years, Crate & Barrel has been the leading home furnishings destination for timeless style, vibrant design, and great value. It opened its doors to the Philippine market as a franchise through SM Retailer subsidiary HMS Development Corporation.

Marin White Dinnerware

Artisanal ceramic shapes are glazed a soft white with subtle hand-antiquing on the free form rims.

Arch White Bed

Freshly dressed in crisp white, the streamlined curves on the bed's headboard and footboard combine with subtly tapered legs for a light, open feel. Designed by Blake Tovin, the airiness of this queen bed is enhanced by its cutaway headboard.

Graphite Neutral Striped Wool Rug

Inspired by Welsh culture and craft, designer Bethan Gray lines this plush wool rug in a spindle motif that feels both graphic and elegant. Crafted of pure wool, this rug will occasionally shed, especially during the first few months, which is easily managed with regular vacuuming.

Ridley Wool Rug

This rug’s neutral floral motif has an open, geometric layout, updating its vintage pedigree with a fresh, cottage feel. Each flatweave rug is created on a vertical loom, which requires two skilled artisans to operate. Serged border adds a neat finish.

Nash Entryway Cabinet

This minimalist pairing of white Carrera marble and warm wood is an elegant entryway option that's equally at home in any room. It is a Crate & Barrel exclusive.

Como Dinnerware

Paola Navone's palette of blues is inspired by her world experiences and life by the sea. Organic shapes in white porcelain dinnerware transform the table into a playful puzzle, spontaneous with splashed spots, free form squiggles or bold strokes in rich tones of blue.

Bluestone Kitchen Island

Like a treasured vintage find or a custom-designed piece, this elegant kitchen island serves as a rustic yet refined workstation for the home cook or entertaining enthusiast. Bluestone is crafted with reclaimed pine from old buildings and doors and a lustrous slab of bluestone. The Bluestone Kitchen Island is a Crate & Barrel exclusive.

Big Sur Dining Table

The bold, rustic Big Sur dining table is all about the sheer raw beauty of nature. Each organic piece of solid European white oak reveals its family tree, with legs crafted of a single piece of heartwood—the strongest part of the tree—exposing the trunk's inner rings. 

Boka Midnight Blue Table Lamp

An update on mid-century modern design, this piece showcases an appealing blend of curves, angles and a deep midnight blue glaze.
