If you’ve ever been to a Philux store, chances are, you’re familiar with how captivating every item on display is. It’s difficult not to stop and inspect a table or a chair simply because of how well-made each piece is.

Started by a husband-and-wife team with two carpenters in 1980, Philux has grown into one of the go-to manufacturer and retailer of furniture known for its well-thought-out collections and designs that showcase both contemporary and classic aesthetics.

With new stores opening and businesses setting up shop to meet the demand of homeowners who want to improve their homes, it’s a feat that Philux remains top-of-mind for discerning clients. This is not surprising though, as they’ve remained committed to delivering only the best. “What sets us apart is that we practice age-old Filipino craftsmanship, in combination with modern technology and methods, in an effort to produce quality pieces at the best possible value,” says Jessica Kienle Maxwell, Philux’s vice president and head of design merchandising.

In addition to showcasing Filipino craftsmanship, the pieces are also predominantly manufactured out of sustainably sourced European Linden, Ash, Walnut, and White oak wood, to name a few. “We also work with local weaves, metal accents, and a range of upholstery.

Over the years, we’re proud to have expanded our wood, finish, fabric, metal, and matting options—making the furniture selection process at Philux a much more creative and personal experience for our clientele,” adds Stephanie Kienle Gonzales, the brand’s managing director.

Client experience and how homeowners will enjoy the pieces are important considerations for Philux. Aside from making sure they offer a plethora of options; they also want to deliver pieces that can grow with its users.


As Jessica explains, “good quality pieces that grow and evolve with you through the different stages of your life, or even through the different generations of your family become treasured possessions that last lifetimes.” After all, what better way to spruce up and personalize a home than with timeless pieces?
