From furniture manufacturer Designs Ligna comes Casa Ligna, a high end line for the home. “Designs Ligna has been associated with Asian contemporary. This time around, we’d like to introduce some other styles. We wanted a more contemporary-looking store, even more upscale than what we used to have, and a mix of different materials,” says custom design and merchandising manager Mari Ruiz-Gomez. “We’re known for our wooden products that’s our core material, but with Casa Ligna, we feel we want more liberty to bring in other materials.” The two-storey showroom opened last May along N. Garcia Street in Makati.

Beautiful vignettes composed of modern yet warm, exquisitely crafted furniture and décor—some already familiar to those who know Designs Ligna, others totally new to the eyes—abound in the showroom. The bestsellers include the sofas from Vietnam, which was unexpected because “sofas haven’t been our strength in manufacturing since we’re strong in wood construction, [but] we were able to find a very reliable supplier of sofas who carries a lot of interesting designs that the market is looking for now,” says Mari. Accessories from Indigo—bowls, candleholders, and lanterns—and lamps from Cebu exporter Catalina are also a hit, as well as Casa Ligna’s very own folding bars and Campaign Desk, which they always run out of.
