Every space tells a different and unique story that begins with a design inspiration. The creative process to transform inspiration into a spectacular living space may take several designing avenues leading to that perfect interior that is filled with beautiful furniture and home accessories.

To find interior ideas and tasteful and unique artisanal offerings, W/17 and Veranda by W/17 offer remarkable pieces sourced from all over the world. W/17 opened its doors in 2011, bringing the world’s finest decor to homeowners, whether traditional, minimalist, or style mavericks.


Owners Kaye Tinga and Andy Vazquez Prada established Veranda by W/17 three years later, bringing a new brand of outdoor living ideas to the market. W/17 and Veranda by W/17 continue to introduce unique additions for the most discriminating homeowners, setting new standards for your living space.

Peking Glass Vases by Alexander Lamont

Touch of color


Even in the dreariest days, a touch of color will brighten up any space. Accessories in vibrant colors are just the thing.

Peking glass vases—from Thailand-based, French artist Alexander Lamont—in an assortment of colors, are the perfect embellishment to any living area. Another quick way to freshen up a room is to introduce accent pieces in natural material or organic shapes.

W/17 recommends side tables in petrified wood or burnt wood—it is the ideal finishing touch to any living space. The addition of a petrified or burnt wood table is the perfect way to update the look of your living room or den, as it works well in any home whether classic or modern.

Outdoor pieces

Still another way to bring outdoor elements indoors, is to inject one, two or even more outdoor furniture to your studio, dining room, or sitting area. Sika Design, handmade furniture from Denmark, has a whole line of wicker furniture that would complement any apartment or house.

Choose from a wide assortment of classic styles, as well as selections from top furniture designers such as Arne Jacobsen, Franco Albini, and Nanna Dietzel among others. Sika Design also has a range of all weather furniture for your outdoor needs.


Visit W/17, and Veranda by W/17 for your furnishing requirements and find a range of carefully curated products for your home, where elements of time, texture, and character are embedded into every find. Sika Design and Alexander Lamont are available exclusively at W/17, and Veranda by W/17.

W/17 is located at Warehouse 17, La Fuerza Compound, 2241 Pasong Tamo, Makati City. Veranda by W/17 is located at the fourth floor of SM Megamall Fashion Hall.

Contemporary art

Meanwhile, colorful paintings highlight any style of interiors. Modern and classic furniture pieces need artworks to complete a cohesive interior design space.

After your visit to W/17, drop by the Finale Art File Tall Gallery (contact no. +632 813 2310) located at the same compound and check out the ongoing exhibit of Monica Delgado and Michelle Pérez. A joint exhibition called “Painting in Trouble (Is a Temporary Thing)” opened last week and will be held until July 29.

The first time for the two artists to show their works together, this colorful and brilliant exhibition gathers their series of recent objects mainly produced using poured and layered acrylic paint: vividly-colored and viscous forms shaped through both controlling the medium and letting it flow.

These contemporary young artists explore in their own ways the possibility of painting without the tools of painting: perhaps pointing to how, within the practice of post-modern art, painting may not be in trouble, after all.
