Haute Design

I finally was able to go to LRI Design Plaza.  I have heard about this place from friends who are in the interior design business and read about it in lifestyle magazines.  I could just imagine, it must be a treasure trove of quality furniture - from the best of  asian modern, modern minimalist, funky furniture to rarities, antiques and collectible art.  

Mickey and I arrived late in the afternoon on a Saturday and were able to catch some of the stores before they closed at 7:00 pm.  So please indulge me in my next blog posts as I feature some of the wonderful stores at LRI Design Plaza.  

The first store we went to was Haute Design

What I like about this store is that they make local furniture fun and the look - modern.  The store features organically sourced materials and furniture in modern colors for a more vibrant home or for accent pieces.  Most of the furniture are resort-ish in nature which is a good thing, don’t we all want to go home and feel like we are on vacation someplace?

Haute Design has an array of local modern furnishings, from dining tables and chairs, lounge chairs, accessories for the home (I love the glass starfish, you'll see it in the photos later) and lighting fixtures.  Have a look:




These chairs are surprisingly comfortable.  I also love that it's local and they came in candy colors.
Material:  Metal frame, rattan seat back wrapping in Solihiya weaving with white muslin cushion






There were also dining tables and chairs



  These sea urchin shells are used as mini-shades for a hanging lamp




These are the glass starfishes that I like.  Don't those jars complement them?  



Abaca fiber swatches in different shades -
 you can choose from the different weaves and colors when you order the abaca rugs.



I love the planter with the rings



Serving trays with matryoshka doll prints





A console table in wrought iron



and a matching coffee table in wrought iron


A coffee table with bamboo legs 


Large scale outdoor table and chairs



  
More weaves and solihiya patterns in different chairs and tables







Llano Lounge chairs
Material: Metal frame in natural rattan (outer core) weaving with cotton twill seat upholstery 











Wall accents for added texture and depth to an otherwise plain wall



Lightweight and airy dining table and chairs



I love the huge planter





These keychains reminds me of Prada's robot keychains

I also love the Volkswagens, jeeps and Vespas in wood
