Crate & Barrel opens their first store in Manila!

In the past, I've only seen Crate & Barrel's merchandise in imported magazines and in their very own home stores abroad.  I absolutely love the simple, subdued and grown up styling that they do in their stores.  It made me wish we had Crate & Barrel here in the Philippines too.

Months before the opening of their first flagship store in the ultra-hip Mega Fashion Hall, I was eagerly anticipating what the store would look like and of course what home items they would bring in.

A week ago, Crate & Barrel finally opened their doors and I was privileged to attend the exclusive VIP launch.  Champagne overflowed, hors d'oeuvres were served and live jazz music played all night.

The event was hosted by Hillary Isaac and Crate & Barrel was officially inaugurated by Mrs. Felicidad Sy, Mr. Hans Sy, Ms. Pascale Jimenez and representatives from Crate & Barrel.

The doors opened to different tablescapes, living room and bedroom set-ups, area rugs and beautiful pillows to give more color and texture to a living space. There are also many household items you won't normally find elsewhere, quirky finds that will surely make you smile, but there are also simple, multi-colored glassware and dinnerware sets which they are known for.

Here are some photos inside Crate & Barrel's first flagship store in the Philippines.  Enjoy!



You'll find a lot of tablescape inspiration in the store


Pops of red accessories liven up this table setting


All the things you'll ever need when you're entertaining guests are all here

  
What everybody's New Year's eve table would look like


Cozy living room couches and easy arm chairs


Colorful carpets to define your living space


Big comfortable beds, soft bed sheets and even wall art and bedroom accessories


Not the usual dining table set, this one is very chic (especially with the white chairs)

Carpets in different textures


Pillows in different colors and designs


In every home store, this section is my weakness, I like changing pillowcases as often as I can.


For pasta lovers


Lots of kitchenware and even the kitchen towels are pretty


All the kitchen tools you'll ever need


Different colored chairs to liven up your dining table or as accent chairs


Crate & Barrel comes to the Philippines through a partnership with SM Retailer's subsidiary HMS Development Corporation.

For your home needs, visit Crate & Barrel at the 4th level of the Mega Fashion Hall.
