Beyond mainstream: Finding your essentials from the web

/ 03:06 AM July 28, 2018

Shopping for furniture can sometimes test one’s patience and imagination.

It can be frustrating especially when you have a particular piece or style in mind but cannot find it in mainstream furniture stores. Conversely, it can also be overwhelming, given the dizzyingly countless options to choose from, that we find ourselves suddenly unsure of what it is that we really want for our living space.

Thank heavens for social media which has also become an avenue for shops which you cannot typically find in huge malls but offer furniture for the home or office that simply match what we need.


We rounded up some home furnishing essentials and where you can get them.

It has been said time and time again that a person can never have too many shoes. But having all your sneakers, boots, heels, sandals and loafers scattered all over the place is not cool, either. Shoe cabinets are a great way to keep your shoes in one place. The Brusali Shoe Cabinet from Furniture Source Philippines is available in black brown and white for P8,900. It is well ventilated, too, which helps keep your shoes from looking beat up and smelling funky.

What: Yellow Accent Chair x Foot Stool
Where: Doozy Furniture

The rainy days are making us yearn for sunshine more and more. Give your room a pop of color by introducing pieces such as this yellow accent chair and foot stool. Not only does it give life to your living space, it’s also good for taking that much deserved break, too. Available at Doozy Furniture for P13,000.


What: Rottoman
Where: Resurrection Furniture

Resurrection Furniture thought of breathing new life into discarded pieces of rocking chairs hence the “Rottoman” was born. How’s that for ingenuity? The Rottoman makes a good addition to one’s living space as one can always use an extra seat around. It makes for a good conversation piece, too.
