Home and beyond

I assisted my brother to schools last last week and we've been busy looking for furniture for weeeeeks now --hence the hiatus / slow turn-out of posts! Anyhoo, this series of furniture hunt makes me admire interior designers!! It's really a baffling task to look for pieces which are suiting --to the size (all the more for a small space!! i.e condo), walls, motif, and other details of a space-- especially if there are a lot of pretty choices! 

Glad that I always tag along! I get giddy seeing beautiful pieces here and there! :))  

Every piece is really unique and indeed exportesque! I was in awe when we were inside the showroom! :) <3 I wanted to bring home something from any of the participating renowned manufacturers!

I love their accent pieces --metal works, stone ones, and so on! Their shop always stands out! Got two pretty hand-painted Taiwan works from them!! <3 Can't wait to see them on my wall! :)
 Insignia is a company known for its collection of unique and world class decorative materials ranging from interior to exterior applications.  Its humble beginnings started out as a family collection of rare artifacts and novelties collected around the world.  With number of collections on hand, we decided to sell some of it in different bazaars (at the height of the bazaar fever) and the response was tremendous.  Clients’ demands were overwhelming hence; we decided to open a semi-permanent shop around Manila area; from one shop some three years ago to five shops this year in Metro Manila area alone.
Insignia is dedicated to provide the most unique and trend-setting decorative materials for Manila’s penchant for very distinct artworks.  Local and foreign collectors have graced our shops; designers and architects have repeatedly ordered for their clients; home and business owners (like spas, hotels, restaurants, and others) have proudly displayed Insignia Artworks.  They have come for one thing… Insignia will always give our customers quality and unique artworks at a competitive price. -Arch. Genevieve K. Siao, General Manager
They have branches at: 
Ortigas Home Depot (where we went)
3/F Home Zone, Glorietta 4
4/F Art Plaza, Shangri-La Plaza
4/F Rustan's Dept. Store, All Titott merchandise, Shangri-La Plaza 
2/F North Building, SM MoA
Saw them at Tiendesitas too

They say Mandaue Foam (of Cebu) is the secret haven of interior designers! No wonder! Everything is really cheap and they even go on sale --from throw pillows, accent pieces, furniture, lighting, foam, mattress, and other home necessities. I really was amazed on their pricing and choices!
 Mandaue Foam Industries, Inc. is a Filipino-owned corporation primarily engaged in the manufacturing of polyurethane foam used in beds, furniture, packaging, garments, insulation and the automotive industry.
Started in 1971 by Mrs. Rosita T. Uy as a foam manufacturer, Mandaue Foam has rapidly grown over the past 37 years. Today, Mandaue Foam is one of the country’s top 1000 corporations with 15 factories and showrooms nationwide.
In 1989, Mandaue Foam brought its brand of quality foam products straight to home use customers with the opening of its first retail showroom in Cebu. Soon after that, it opened its branches in Davao, Iloilo, Cagayan de Oro, Bacolod, Butuan and Gen. Santos. 2005 was another landmark year as the company opened Jaro Town Square in Iloilo, a 6,000 sq. meter development, which includes a furniture showroom, a supermarket, fast food and appliance store. 2 years after, Mandaue Foam expanded its operations to the GMA area by opening its first factory and showroom in Ortigas Avenue Extension. It is equipped with state-of-the-art foaming machines to serve our retail and trade customers. -from here
  Singit photo! hihi
Always a must to have a full body mirror, no? :)
Love this comfy studded Pink Manila top! And the bow garterized belt that comes with this Zara capris...
 Pretty curtains! Even prettier than the ones I see in Our Home, SM, etc! And way way cheaper here!
 Saw a number of cheap bonggang 'chandeliers'! They're all pretty good for the price!
