With branding so strong, it reflects in everything from fashion to beauty to homeware, this eclectic, bohemian brand out of Philadelphia is the older, more affluent, more well-traveled sister of young brand Urban Outfitters. Although Anthropologie finds aren’t available in Manila, its feed manages to thresh up a vibe that is very present in the city today. Follow for beautiful colors, international flavors, and truly delectable styling.
While this brand, as of late, has garnered a lot of attention for well curated celebrity homes and fashion forward establishments (hello, Sunnies Café and Happy Skin) Heima has always been known for their clean, Scandi-inspired aesthetic. Their feed takes the pastel pinks, refreshing mints, and cool grays to a whole other level with impeccably styled shots featuring their brand’s own pieces. PS: Even their ads are absolutely gorgeous, you’ll want them on your feed.
Heima Store is located at #103 Three Brixton St. Brgy. Pasig 1603, Brixton St., Pasig City.

6. Design Story
With a feed as bright and breezy as everything its featured brands have to offer, you would want to follow Design Story, too. Delicate lines, simplified styling, and sparse color palettes are the hallmark of HAY, while Stellar Works highlights a chic Asian sensibility and timeless design. These two brands can help you complete the space you've always wanted, and it's good to know that you can find them under one roof.
Visit Design Story at 3rd Level, Uptown Mall, 9th Ave. corner 36th St., Uptown Bonifacio, The Fort, Taguig City.
A longtime player in the Manila furniture scene, BoConcept fuses urban living with Danish design. Translate that platitude into visual form and what you get is a feed filled with gorgeously decorated homes that range from your dude’s dream bachelor pad to a family home set against idyllic European forests. If you can’t afford the higher price points (of both the furniture and the lush homes), you can at least dream and double-tap away.
Visit BoConcept Philippines at 1st Flr, MOs Design Bldg., B2, Bonifacio High Street, 9th Ave., Taguig.

That said, resourceful Pinoys have found a handful of workarounds, managing to score these inexpensive, DIY buys despite the store’s absence here. IKEA has always been known for its comprehensive catalog—their IG account is just another way for you to access the best in starter home furniture right at your fingertips.
Ito Kish has made his name not only in furniture but also in flawless styling and visual merchandising. This knack for knowing just how to style a living room piece, a tabletop or a side table is translated directly into his store’s eponymous Instagram account. Expect a lot of white space, decadent pieces and a bridging of minimalist and maximalist ideals. If your feed’s been lacking lush detailing as of late, this is a must-follow.
Visit KISH at #233 Nicanor Garcia Street, Makati City.
Tucked in a quiet corner of Pasay, Artelano 11 houses Eric Paras’ meticulously curated collection of art deco and mid-century inspired pieces.
