Aside from giving guests and visitors a dose of design inspiration, Real Living Space also showcased different pieces from various stores like Crate and Barrel, MAV Furniture, Match Contract Furniture, L'Indochine, and Home Matters, to name a few.

If you're looking for pieces that will complete your home, we've selected 10 must-haves from this year's six well-designed spaces. Remember, it's never too early to accomplish a Christmas wish list!

Geometric Base Side Table, price available upon request, Home Matters

Stylist and designer Pam Tan chose to place this piece in the bathroom to hold a couple of essentials and tabletop decor. You can also do the same to avoid a messy counter. If you need an accent piece in the living area, you can never go wrong with this table!

Dining Table, price available upon request, MAV Furniture

Add a rustic touch to your dining area with this table! For a mismatched look, you can pair it with different chairs.

Nesting Tables, price available upon request, L'Indochine

You may place these pieces in the living area. Showcase the intricate carvings by choosing to add only a small potted plant and two or three tabletop decor on top.

Davis Twin Sleeper, P71,690, Crate and Barrel

If you've just moved into your new studio unit, you may want to opt for this multipurpose piece from Crate and Barrel. The Davis Twin Sleeper can assure you of a good night's sleep! It can also accommodate your friends when they visit.

Metal Luggage Console, price available upon request, Allen Oblena Interiors

Add a vintage touch to your space with this unique console table! You can place it by the foyer or in your living area as extra storage for your things.

Fabric (for customized fabric wall), price available upon request, Townes, Inc.

Spruce up an empty wall at home with lovely fabric! This piece from Townes adds a charming and cozy touch to the compact space.

Bed Frame, price available upon request, Morfosis Design

Pai Edles and Misty Floro of Morfosis Design customized the bed frame using materials from a junk shop. Since the frame is slim, it would be ideal for a studio unit or small bedroom.

Bed Headboard (made from windows), price available upon request, Wilcon

Add a French-vintage touch to your space with this unique headboard from Wilcon. It can serve as wall accent, too!

Aqua Secretary Desk, price available upon request, Lucina Home

No extra room for a home office? There's no need to worry! You can simply place this secretary desk in one corner of your living room or bedroom (if you only have a small space), then you're all set! Maximize the piece by using it to keep your documents, accessories, and other essentials in place as well.

Greek Fretwork Mirror, P5,020, Mandaue Foam

Turn this funtional piece into an instant wall accent! Use it in your bedroom to liven up an empty wall.
