If you’ve been online since Sunday, we’re sure you know that actress Anne Curtis and her boyfriend of six years, Erwan Heussaff got engaged last month. In between hitting the replay button of their heartwarming travel/engagement video and daydreaming about their soon-to-be wedding, we can’t help but revisit Anne’s posh condo in Makati City.

With its cozy nooks, envy-worthy reading corner, and lovely bedrooms, it’s a house that anyone can file under #designpegs. One of the areas that would easily catch the attention of guests is the dining area.

Aside from giving the owner and her guests a fantastic view of the skyline, it’s also a perfect spot for hearty meals with friends and family. Mismatched chairs give it personality while the copper lamps add a modern futuristic touch. Achieve something similar in your home with these must-have picks:

1. A slim table can help you save on space and achieve a sleek look for your dining space. It works well with eclectic dining chairs, too.
