Stores Specialists, Inc. brings Brooklyn-based home furnishings retailer West Elm to Manila. (It opens at the Estancia Mall at Capitol Commons on Friday, June 12 at 10 a.m.) The warm authenticity of its wares is a breath of fresh air amid the washed-out, Scandinavian minimalism that has dominated a lot of homes in years past. For one, the brand has sent fashion designer Steven Alan to artisans in India, Nicaragua and Haiti, where he re-envisioned his signature style as vases, bedding and rugs.
Check out these pieces from the summer collection:
Steven Alan Plaid Duvet and Pillow Shams
Hand Drawn Stripe Sheet Set
Mosaic Bistro Table
Racing Stripe Boxes
We can hardly wait.
