Where to get luxury fixtures in the city

EVERYTHING IN ITS PLACE BoConcept, urban Danish design from MOs Design PH

Some look for a beautiful house, while others make their home beautiful. Once you find the perfect dwelling that suits you, it’s time to turn the space into your own. Live load elements like furniture complete your sheltering space, make life easier, provide warmth, and bring individuality. They also enhance functionality, provide comfort, define the look of your house, and add a sense of permanence that transforms a residence into a place of love, hope, and dreams. The furniture is a backdrop to our lives.

That said, here is a list of stores and designers where you can get premier fixtures in Manila, particularly Taguig.
