Shop of the Week: Home Matters

Find proudly Filipino-made furniture and home decor customized to fit your unique needs at Home Matters

Business partners, real estate agents, and good friends Rusky Carlos and Mike Lim found it difficult to decorate their own houses because the pieces they wanted were not affordable.

“We encountered very similar problems, which was trying to look for the right piece and style of furniture that we wanted and the price that’s appropriate for our status,” confesses Rusky. “Our tastes turned out to be too expensive. We realized that there was a discrepancy between the stuff that we liked and the budget that we set.”

Driven by the passion for all things nice, they seized the opportunity and filled the gap by establishing Home Matters, a brand that offers customized furniture and accessories, in March 2013.

In this store, each piece is tailor-made to the client’s exact liking. And contrary to assumptions, customized furniture often proves to be more reasonably priced compared to branded ones, since there’s no need to pay for an elusive name or its prestige. Whether you know exactly what you want or are clueless about how to put pieces together, you can simply walk in and consult with Home Matters’ knowledgeable staff or with any of the over 65 designers in its pool.

Stepping into the showroom, you’ll notice a tug-of-war between the old and new—vintage pieces like the Underwood typewriter (P9,000) alongside modern items like the Barley dining table (P34,800). And while many may find it confusing, the eclectic mix actually proves that the store is very versatile. The designers of Home Matters are capable of creating furniture in various styles inspired by different eras. It’s not surprising, then, that this new home store attracts a wide range of clientele. If the showroom is but a taste of what Home Matters can offer, then customers can be assured that the only limitation to dressing their homes is their imagination.
