Whether you are furnishing your new home or just wanted a new furniture piece, check out Avino Fine Living, a  store that offers space-saving pieces, elegant décor and fine customer service.

This brand has various convertible sofas with hidden storage—The Murray Sofa Bed, being the most popular among the lot, converts into a queen-sized bed—plus they can be customized to your taste and to fit your space.

The brains behind Avino Fine Living, Andy See and his brothers Alex and Bao come from a family of furniture dealers, designers, and manufacturers. As the three ventured into wholesaling, customers eventually started contacting them and that led to marketing their own brand—the birth of Avino’s first showroom in Quezon City, which opened in October 2015.

Avino Fine Living showroom is brimming with furniture pieces like ottomans, accent chairs, dining sets, and sofa beds—the more popular items among the lot. Most, if not all, are customizable. For instance, the sofa beds come with slipcovers that can be easily removed and replaced with a new pattern and color. Modular, foldable dining sets can also be fitted according to your unit’s space requirements. “We wanted to start with something small—not very expensive, not very intimidating, something very functional yet affordable,” says Andy.

Andy is particularly proud of this modular dining table—a prototype he made for a client whose limited space requires a piece that’s functional but also allows more room for foot traffic. This dining table, which incorporates a shelf and has provisions for a pendant lamp, can be easily folded when not in use. “It saves space, has extra storage, is customizable that’s what we try to bring into the market,” she adds. Dining Table, price available upon request.

The decorative items on display such as wall art, hurricane lamps, and tiny succulents housed in reclaimed wood planters make the showroom much homier. There are also pretty paper products and Fujifilm Instax cameras sold under the Paper Blush Brand.

Aside from the exceptional pieces, Avino Fine Living wants to focus on better services—having this as the brand's “main product” considering that product pieces get obsolete in three to five years, but the service that they offer has to be topnotch and would leave an impact to the clients.

RL Picks: Set of Storage Boxes; Moonta Lounge Seat; Wooden Board, all prices available upon request.
