INTERIOR DESIGN IN THE PHILIPPINES

We haven't been into any furniture shows. We know, pathetic. But for the benefit of our local and foreign readers (if there's any), we will show you a bunch of Philippine Interior Design exibits or orgs to watch out for. As we mentioned in our previous post, we 'have steadily diversified our approach in interior design.'

PIFSHOWThe Philippine International Furniture Shows (PIFS) are the must-see furniture shows in the ASEAN Furniture circuit. Long considered the Milan of Asia, the Philippine furniture shows have for over thirty years produced outstanding and creative quality furniture and furnishings that are steeped in cultural tradition and diversity.



CFIP
The Chamber of Furniture Industries of the Philippines (CFIP) was established in 1966 by nine furniture manufacturers and exporters. This nonstock, nonprofit organization is the national association of companies, chapters and affiliates working together for the mutual benefit and the sustainable growth of the Philippine furniture industry.

CFIP underscores that the main strength of the Philippine furniture industry is design, especially pieces that incorporate indigenous materials.
Today, CFIP remains one of the industry's strongest business support organizations.


CebuNext
From X to NEXT. The 21 year old Cebu International Furniture and Furnishings Exhibition, previously known as CEBU X, has been reincarnated as CEBUNEXT.

As CEBUNEXT, the exhibition embodies the drive to create new designs with exceptional quality. It harnesses and consolidates the collective strength of the Philippine furniture industry, while highlighting Cebu as the design capital of Southeast Asia.

Cebu has a rich history in furniture making. So rich that is is even the key source for trends that are followed worldwide, such as the popularity of rattan and buri in the 60s and 70s respectively, stonecraft in the 80's, cane & iron furnishings in the 90's and the abaca trend of early 2000. CEBUNEXT continues this leading legacy by setting its sights forward to the furniture trends of the coming decade. Segue: *our neighbor blogger was fortunate enough to have been to CebuNext's 2010 show. Click here and here for their reportage.*


Manila Fame
Evolving, re-inventing, transforming. Manila F.A.M.E. International, the second longest-running trade platform for home and fashion lifestyle products in the Asia Pacific and the only Union des Foires Internationales (UFI) recognized trade fair in the Philippines, welcomes you to a new phase as it opens its doors as Asia’s Boutique Show.

Hi Asa Welcome to the Philippines!

We recommend you to go to any Rustan's, SM (Shoemart) Department Stores or Landmark Department Stores. SM Department stores can be found in all SM malls while Rustan's and Landmark is in Ayala malls like Glorietta and Trinoma.

Hi Anon: Thank you!
