“Design the true you into the spaces that you breathe.” This hand-painted sign greets shoppers at Urban Abode, a furniture and accessories shop owned by interior designer Kristine Neri-Magturo and her husband Mike Magturo. Kristine and Mike encourage their clients to live by these words as they choose from the pieces in this 60sqm store. Mike explains that most of these products are produced locally to promote Filipino craftsmanship.

The space is completed with accessories such as deer antlers from the United States and South Africa, and the best-selling 1940s American vintage shoe lasts. Other popular items are the mango wood hands and the geometric animal trophy heads by Chris Abrigo.
