RL Picks: Asian-Inspired Must-Haves

Create a cohesive look in your Asian-themed space


To make this look work, stick to a specific Asian theme for a more cohesive look. For Indochine interiors, look for colorful and vibrant Asian pieces. For a Japanese-inspired room, go for minimalist Zen pieces.

Picks by Dagny Madamba, Paula de Guzman, and Tala Singson. Photographed by Dakila Angeles and Paolo Feliciano.
