Tropical design and summer style usually equates to woven furniture in a neutral palette. This wasn’t the immediate direction of interior designer Kristine Neri Magturo for her new summer collection for Pasig furniture store Urban Abode.

The designer drew inspiration instead from memories of summers spent with her family, and this gave birth to the “IDYLLIC: Days In The Sun” collection, which features nostalgic wicker pieces mixed with a hint of midcentury modern style.

Here’s a preview of some of the pieces:

Westwood Peacock Headboard

Kristine recalls memories of a charming peacock headboard in her aunt’s room. The memory is reinvented into this new flamboyant headboard painted a cool, teal green.
